your mom goes to college...

funny but true. i did it. i enrolled at the local college to finish my medical transcription certificate. probably the bravest thing i've done in a year. (what a wimp). stuck in my comfort zone. either to scared or too tired to venture out. well not any more. i am so excited. i am also scared to death.

i had to go in today and submit a writing sample. scary. this blog is about all the writing i do. before i left gracie and cass reminded me to say a prayer. boy did i pray hard. first, that i would have a clear mind and do well. second, that there would be a choice of topics and third, that i would have a clue about at least one of them! this was the one i picked: the american family used to be characterized by a working father, a homemaker mother and several well behaved children. in what ways is your family similar/different from this past typical image of the american family?

whew! i just started writing and before i knew i had over a page of essay done and was feeling pretty good about it. now i know we aren't the cleavers but i think we represent the typical family. and apparently the person reading the essay appreciated it because the note that came back said 'thanks for the occasional laugh'. typical and funny.

Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.-Margaret Nadauld
