I Can See Myself...

"Nurse Rosenthal...You're needed in room 313 please..."
Can't you just hear it?
A woman comes into the emergency room having contractions. She's panicking and I give her encouragement as I prepare her labor and delivery room, check her vitals, check the baby's vitals, while answer a nervous new dad's questions.
I can see it.
I was in a program that promised a scholarship to nursing school. So I applied, tested and was accepted. Orientation is next Tuesday. I just received a call that they don't know if they can still offer me the scholarship...without it I won't be able to start class. I want this so bad that I can taste it. I want to finish something for once. I want to be able to give my kids a better life. My dream is to be a labor and delivery nurse. Every fiber of my being is hoping, praying and wishing that I will be in class come January 10th on this scholarship so that I can graduate in November.
