Thanks my friend -- busy - busy - busy!! Both work and home - have taken on the role of executive director of our sister program - and we are doing infrastructure upgrades as well - so could move into work and never be caught up! On the home front all well - hubby back to work after the dislocated shoulder (bankort lesion (sp?) - fell at work, and was off work for 9 weeks! All well with kids - granddaughters - so can't complain - just have to be sure to take care so as to be here!! Hope you and yours are well and your persistence in your studies is rewarded!
Thanks - your prayers are needed. It is tough; but I will keep going. I was very much surprised by my mother today. I have been trying to encourage her to go on a plant based diet, but to no avail. Today she asked me what area in nursing I would like to concentrate on. I told her "I don't know yet" in order to avoid the topic of health and veganism (although I have been targeting the areas of diabetes and heart health). To my surprise, she encouraged me to go into diabetes education and then began to tell me how she is trying to eliminate meat from her diet. Lesson learned: Keep quiet, live the lifestyle and keep praying...
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT!
Just been going nuts with classes - but doing okay. It was inspiring to see the new members and the activity. My ethics professor is seemingly proveg but doesn't know how to go about it. He hasn't asked about it, so I am not going to force the issue. He loathes animal abuse and made us all write a paper on an environmental hero. I wrote one on John Muir, the founder of the Sierra club. Please pray for wisdom. I am pressing on for nursing, but I have doubts. I am pro-nutrition, but dietitians have tough times with jobs/pay and many veg dietitians end up in jobs going against their beliefs. As a nurse, I will end up pushing drugs, even when I know my patients may do better on a plant based diet. I am pressing on, but your prayers are appreciated. It will be a long road, I am still working on prerequisites.
