A Journey Amongst Friends I was fortunate enough to go to nursing school with my best friend Harley. We had gone to school since Elementary school. I knew that if we did it together that I would make it to graduation. I was right we did make it to graduation. We had some difficulties and it was a very stressful time in our lives, but we made it.
In my older life, and particularly within my job role, this has taught me that I can be emphatic and sympathetic towards people. I have always been interested in history, including my own family history. When I was young, I would sit for hours on end listening to grandmas stories of her own background and where she came from. This has given me a sense of my own self and has taught me how to be a good listener with the people that I care for in my working life. My parents always showed great dignity and respect for other people, their own parents, aunts, and uncles.
As a conclusion, my mother is my blessed gift in my life. There are many people who have inspired me in many ways but, my mother who inspired me the most. I admire her very much because she teaches me what I should do and what I should not. I am so proud to have her as my mother and also appreciate for what she did for me. (454
I can honestly say that the teacher in the classroom did a great job with her students and I will be walking away with a bunch of awesome strategies and resources to take back to my own classroom to help with teaching reading and language arts.

Life Span Development and Personality If you speak to anyone about Oprah, they will be able to tell you that she is one of the most influential and dynamic people of our time. However, not many know of where she came from and what her home life was like growing up. Oprah Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954 in a small town in Mississippi.

During her time with her grandparents, she gained a passion for reading and writing, allowing her to excel in school and surpass her other classmates (Winfrey O. , 2008).
A Mothers Influence The Positive Impact Committee conducted a survey in 2004 on how many Americans have a positive impact in their lives, statistics revealed that out of a thousand people, 85% agreed that their mother was the positive person in their life. When I was presented with this question, I thought about it for a few seconds and without any doubts I came to the conclusion that my mother, Gertrude Mack was that person of interest. I still follow and hold her morals and values that she instilled in me close to my heart, even after her death. My mother was dedicated, generous, and honest. Gertrude was a dedicate mother who reared six children by herself.
I had the opportunity to interview a registered nurse who I have trained in the past when she was new to our department, but now I admire and view as a mentor. My interview was with a forty-two year veteran diploma graduate registered nurse who is but one year from retirement. She has worked at several different hospitals and in several different departments through out her career. I enjoyed hearing her experiences and related to a lot of the past and could understand what nursing has been, how it has moved forward, and what the future might hold for nurses. A time ago nursing was viewed as a “woman’s job”.

My dad worked as a director in the field of market research, and my mom, who had previously worked in a medical office, stayed home the first six or so years of my life. I do believe that I was blessed in the area of learning. My mom had a way of making everything a learning experience for me. She would encourage my imagination and my curiosity, and I remember going so many places with her. Even as a toddler, I
