Dearest Robin....I see you telling about your roller coaster ride but I have to tell you that you are absolutely glowing so much more then I have ever seen you in any of your videos. I know that grade wise we are held to a standard that is far above normal and we pride our selves on our grades. My grandmother shared a saying that she heard from a family friend that was asking how I was doing and it has helped me in the lowest of times. At the end of it all... when we receive that diploma there are no grades anywhere on that diploma. That diploma says I gave my blood, sweat, tears, chocolate, time from our babies and family and friends, and gave up our waist lines and WE DID IT! You have always been an inspiration and still chugging away at the pre reqs. Have to redo a quarter so next year is my last year of pre reqs from hell. I wanted to give up but it was that first video of you in your uniform and the excitement and pride of finally getting to where that uniform.... I came back this quarter instead of quitting. There is not quitting in nursing. I cant believe that to soon it will be your graduation video..... I PASSED MY NCLEX video. You are amazing and I am always sending you strength, love, hopes, dreams, and keeping you in my thoughts and close to my heart. Still have the saying with my friends WWRD = what would robin do!! lol our slacking study sessions so one will say it and we will all get a serious look on our face cause we can hear you tell us get our butts to work in that firm but loving mama tone. lol We even have it on a postit and stuck on our planners and binders. Some of us made them in to bookmarks and we all have our hoodies that have the WWRD on them. LOL we have thought about writing to you to send you on and would totally love to. We are a crazy bunch of cocoanuts lol. Hang in there... last year is going to fly.
