When I was a little girl, I didn’t have dreams of being a wife, a mother, or nurse. Nope, I was going to be a pharmacist just like my Pawpaw and Uncle Jack.
High school was centered around academics. I pushed myself taking accelerated classes and studying non-stop. Then I took the class that changed my life…Chemistry. I remember wondering why…why…why; Why do I need to learn the periodic table, why??? I called my Uncle Jack and asked, “Why?” and he said “Lee, you don’t need to know why; just memorize it and move on. Chemistry is the foundation you need to be a pharmacist”
Well, I gave this a lot of thought and realized perhaps I was not supposed to be a pharmacist because I needed to know why! I didn’t want to memorize…I wanted to know!!! Little did I know this concept would be the beginning point for a new path for my life. You see, God had a different plan for my life. He knew the desires of my heart before I did and redirected my steps. I didn’t know my way on this path but I do believe God has directed my every step.
Today, thanks to God, I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a nurse…Who would have thought?
