In Which We Celebrate Jenn!

HAPPY GRADUATION to all who've survived, conquered, and thrived! Bless those who've redeemed their pain and sorrow, who've turned their mourning into dancing!

Special love to our daughter, Jenn, as we've partied all weekend, celebrating her graduation from nursing school ... with a 4.0.

Her little son Tyler's legacy will live on through his mama's goal to work with the littlest and most fragile of us. 'That's why I'm doing what I'm doing.'




Praising God, the Beautiful Redeemer of our griefs and our sorrows ~
Linda

  1. Congratulations, Jenn!!!!!!

    Nurses never get the glory
    and so often take the blame;
    too big a caseload, the old story,
    and Doc's got a tennis game.
    They wear out their shoes so fast
    and their feet are always sore
    and when all is done (at last!)
    there's someone wanting more.
    Where would we be without them?
    I would not want to know
    for love's their professional emblem
    and compassion their rainbow.
    This all should offer no surprise
    for they are angels in disguise.

    1. Angels in disguise.

      For sure.

      And your poem rings true as an apt job description for most parents, too, Andrew ...

  4. Congrats to your daughter in this pursuit of a difficult program. Our oldest granddaughter earned her BSN 2 years ago and I have a deep respect for what such a program requires. We were partying all weekend as well as our oldest grandson graduated from Grove City College magna cum laude with honors in biology as he prepares to head for the Moransi Select Medical Program at the University of South Florida toward his dream of becoming a doctor.

    1. Adult learners do the BEST work ... so motivated, so focused.

      I'd like to think that Tyler is rather gleeful right about now, looking down and seeing his mama so filled with joy and purpose.

  17. Oh Linda ... nurses have such an opportunity to minister grace and mercy to hurting people, don't they? And a nursing career that flows from what your daughter has experienced in losing sweet Tyler? It gives me chills to think of the blessing she will be to the patients and family members she cares for along the way. I'm so happy for you and your family.
