I had my pharmacology comprehensive final this morning. I was so stressed about it yesterday that it was hard to think about anything. I was really tempted to study the whole day. Katie told me about a fireside that she was singing in. I really wanted to go, but didn't know how that would affect my studying or my grade in pharmacology. You have to have a C or better, or they will kick you out of the program. But, I decided that it was better for me to put God and my future family first. I also had an epiphany having watched the movie Hook the night before. How Robin Williams as the dad of the two kids never really went to his kids' performances. As I was listening to Katie sing, it hit me hard that I was really blessed for going to this fireside. I never want to miss any of Katie's or my children's things. I didn't want to be like Robin Williams. I got to study a little bit afterwards, but I didn't feel at all ready. But, I felt at peace.
Then this morning as I finished my pharmacology test I felt like everything was going to be okay. My teacher gave us our scores and I calculated my final class grade from everything we did in the class. I ended up with an 86%, a B. I was so happy. This is what putting the important things first in life is all about. God takes care of the rest. I'm so excited for Christmas! Awesome!
