Finishing strong

Dear friends, I have some idea of how hard you are working this last month. I am here to cheer you on and give you some food for thought.
"It is time for us to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever, the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it." Vince Lombardi
You ARE the doers. How many other nurses have you spoken to who say, "Gee, I'ld like to get my doctorate some day>" Your day is today and you are out there doing it, not thinking of a million reasons why it cannot be done.

"You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try." Beverly Sills. No one here will be doomed for lack of trying! This group of nurses amazes me - full time students, full time jobs, mission trips, kids, partners, professional activities. Wonder Women all (Except Garrett, of course. He is Superman).

"Each of us is great insofar as we perceive and act on the infinite possibilities which lie undiscovered and unrecognized about us." James Harvey Robinson
How many things you have discovered about yourselves! The courage and strength of each individual is only overshadowed by the strength of the group.

Greta, this one's for you: "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds". Albert Einstein.

Enough for now. You are coming into the last leg of this incredible journey. Keep the chin up so you can feel the wind in your hearts. Kathy
