It's Never Too late

I  now know that when someone (usually a Christian) says that they have a calling, I can relate.I do feel as if going to Israel is a calling for me.

I have this feeling that I am waiting to do something special.I've always been a student.I am ready to learn new anythings.I went to college after I had 4 children. My degree was a Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition.I then went back to school and got a Teachers Certificate to teach at the  High School level.One of our children became a physician and I thought that it would be nice to work with her in her practice. I was the oldest member of my nursing class .It wasn't so easy this time. I had to retake some of my original  science classes because my credits were too old and technology has changed.Oy Vey.But I did it. I became a Registered Nurse and worked for my daughter. It was a good time.And then my husband had a stroke. I had to stop and become a caretaker.

 Between all the experiences that I've accumulated,something out there is waiting for me.I'm still growing, I can feel it.

I do feel as if I can make a contribution to Israel.I'm not sure what that will be,but I feel it.I want to get off of that plane  in Tel Aviv and have a crowd from Nefesh B Nefesh call out to me --welcome home. I will feel it.Because it is never too late.

To my dear sweet friend Leona. This blog is wonderful. I have discovered so many things about you that I did not know. How could that be when we are sisters.
