On Getting Accepted

I've been fretting about my future this past month. In fact, I don't really remember being quite this nervous about anything, but that could be because memory is usually the first casualty of advanced age.

However, this past Friday, I received my acceptance letter into the nutrition internship of my choice - the object of my goal these past three years. Beginning in September, 2010, I will be a student of the Coordinated Dietetics Program at Cal State U, Los Angeles. Me and my friends, that is, since it worked out that nearly all my dearest student colleagues were accepted as well.

There are many people to thank for this, including my husband, my children, my extended family, my amazing professors (many of whom I've already thanked) and last, but not least, the Holy One. As I lit Shabbat candles this past Friday, I thanked Him right away, before diving into the litany of requests for success, health, livelihood, and redemption.

Although I'm not done by a long shot, I feel I can safely say that the road traveled so far has been fascinating. I'm met people I hope to know the rest of my life, and realize that with a lot of hard work, we can really change our world. Think global, act local. First we change ourselves, and then the world around us changes.

Thank you Holy One, for allowing me once again to realize it's all good. Now maybe, just maybe, I can finally get a good night's sleep.
