Taking Those Final Steps...

Today is one of those pins-and-needles days for me. My youngest son has an interview this afternoon at the medical school he most wants to attend, and I'm focused on that to the extent that I can post about nothing else. Of course, I am hoping and praying that he will be able to overcome whatever nerves he must be feeling and put his very best foot forward. (I may be prejudiced, but it's my considered opinion that his best foot is a really good one!)

Needless to say, I will spend my morning and much of the afternoon sending good thoughts and many prayers his way. I'd be deeply grateful to anyone who'd like to join me.

Faith moves our feet along each path;
hope lightens every day.
Love nurtures what the heart desires,
and courage clears the way.

But ere we see our journey's end,
before we reach that final bend,
life puts us squarely in our place
and teaches us about God's grace.

No battle fought, no victory won,
no paltry prize or grand
is ever ours to claim.
Each gift is given by His hand.

It's all in His hands now. And I, for one, find that very comforting.

Good luck, Mama. It must be hard to be the mom on this one.

Exciting times in your family, but scary times too. I know what it's like to be on the edge of my chair waiting to find out the results. YES I will pray for you both.

We, too, have had two family prayers and I have had at least two of my own to date. It seems I have a prayer in my heart each minute today as I pray for Todd. I am so sure he will do well, as he always seems to have made a great impression on all the interviewers he has had in the past.

He will make such a great doctor, and, as you know, the thought that I must be here when he graduates medical school and gets his M.D. is what keeps me going, I just have to be here when that happens! What a special guy he really is. I am just so proud of him.

I am always amazed that I feel nervous for my children when they are about to accomplish something.
I bite my fingernails at the ends of races, my stomach is jumpy during finals week at their respective schools and colleges, and when they go for a job interview I also feel on pins and needles. Our children are such an extention of us and we them.
I wish the best for you son - I am sure he'll do GREAT at his interview!

Jess said...
