To Todd


To Todd
on the occasion of your second-to-last med school interview


Today, take with you all the love and luck that you can carry.

Focus on what you want and just "look up" when things get scary.

Remind yourself that being there at all is quite a coup.

(You're interviewing them just like they're interviewing you.)

Enjoy the moment...Days like these are few and far between.

Relax and show them who you are; you'll be the best they've seen!

Way to show your baby boy some real love. I can see how proud you are of him. It's a long road, isn't it? And each one's road is slightly different. But what an amazing journey it is. Go Todd. You ROCK!!!

oh, and PS...love the photo. He sure is looking a lot like his dad these days.

Wendy said...

Good luck to all! What he is doing is great! My BIL will be doing that in one year.

Lisa Loo said...

Loved this! So supportive and inspiring! Sending prayers and wishes from Montana too!

Is it totally stupid that I cried in this post? It's the little things that makes children feel loved. Even if they are big children. One of my favorite posts so far!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Wow Sue Congratulations on your son's wonderful accomplishments. I know he will ace the interview.
I love always how you write and it always inspires me to try and do better.
Of course you have to let us know all about his big day
Love

....and know that because your mum posted this, that many strangers will be thinking of you and sending those good thoughts your way!

Grandma Honey said...

Never thought of it that way but so true...he is interviewing them as they are interviewing him.

Nothing like the power of a Mother's prayer. I can feel it.

For some reason I was sort of humming "I hope you dance" right along with these words!

Todd! Go get 'em.

You have a lot of prayers surrounding you!

I have my fingers and toes crossed for him. I know he will do well. Good luck!

And what a sweet good luck poem!

yaya said...

What a cutie! Why can't we have some good lookin' Docs like him? Someday, in the very near future, your son will be a healer, doing what he wants and loves to do. I can feel it in my bones! Sweetest poem ever because it was written with love!

Ames said...

I've been thinking about him ALL DAY - how did it go? I'm sure he did brilliantly - he is brilliant after all, and he had so many angels praying for him.

I SO get this post! Zach just turned in his match list. We find out March 15 where he goes for residency. Is that when your son finds out too? Where has he interviewed, where does he want to go?

BECKY said...

What a wonderful family you have, Sue! I'm sitting here feeling proud of your son, too! Congrats to him as he continues on his wonderful journey!

last weekend my 4th year college student came home and I found out his new job involves 40 hours a week on top of his school schedule. He's a big boy now in charge of himself, but hey, you never stop wanting to know. And the schedule is 4pm to 1am. Ahh.. the energy of youth!! Did I metion that I fell asleep on the couch last night somewhere between 9 and 10???
