Few careers were evident to me as a small town ministers daughter. Home making and teaching were fine but as a very ill 12 year old with meningitis I was plunged into the world of nurses. This career might bring admiration, adventure, even divine purpose! Did I see their eyes light up when I spoke of my intention? Am I smart, disciplined enough? “They” always wanted me to be responsible and serious.
