If I Still Haven't Rejoiced...

... and expressed my thanks to God, the friends who prayed, etc., then here it is... I am happy to share that my sister passed the Nursing Board!

Of course, it's kinda useless really in the U.S. because they don't really require that there. But still, it's proof that she has the smarts, not just the heart, to be a nurse.

I can still remember how my heart ached to see her crying for hours when she didn't pass the first time. I knew she was so disappointed with herself and so ashamed. I also remember vividly the fights we had because she was paying more attention to the bloody boyfriend than her review... but at least, common sense prevailed, and hard work too.

It's recession in a bad way in the U.S. My friends tell me even nurses can't get good work... but I have no doubt things will turn around in time, for Americans, for everyone. And now I pray that she will get to establish a good life for herself abroad. Not just because our parents are working hard for it, but also because she will be a mother herself.

And, for what it's worth, if this present boyfriend IS the one she's going to choose to spend her forever with, I really hope and pray he's at least half the man my husband is.


She's currently in Florida, enjoying Disneyland, ahehe.


  1. Congratulations to your sister!

    I think that she does need to be a board passer in the Philippines in order to take the NCLEX, right ? Or has she taken that already ?

    Good luck :)
