Smile Wonderful news (x's 2!)

I submitted Application for Nursing School.May 11,I received a Letter saying,"Dear Butter_Butt,You have met the entrance requirements for consideration of an Interview with the Admissions Committee for the Practical Nursing Program.".My Interview is scheduled for next Week.Receiving the Letter on May 11 was extra special,because May 11 would have been my Birth Mother's 67th Birthday.She died when I was 1 Week and 4 Day's.I feel she sprinkled happiness on me from Heaven above.Hopefully this is my first step to a lifelong Career of helping People.I look forward to every second!Am SOOO happy,I've cried,laughed and smiled til my Cheeks hurt!

The other wonderful news is: Last Night,my Blood Sugar was 160 after having over 200s since March 22!!:

I am really glad for you. I really enjoyed my nursing education. I was in a great program and hope you enjoy school too.

Ruthxxx,
You must've been admiring your June Garden! Thank you so much.I haven't been officially accepted.Just made it to an Interview.I will find out quicker if I was accepted.It took a bit longer to receive Letter for Interview.It's a long process,but one that is well worth it!

Hey Butter: I did an RN in the late 80's. I am now a midwife though, but still use my nursing skills. I have been able to attend to some beloved relatives in their end of life situations, and have treasured the skills I learned at school.
I also miss the simplicity of it, like in the next 7 weeks, you must learn this.....
I was finite, it built on what I had already learned, and then I got to write a test. Easier than ongoing everyday work in some ways.
Hope you get in, but I am sure with your motivation that will help.
