I have these wonderful old books that were my grandmother's when she was a girl. Some of them still have her name written inside the cover in her lovely Spencerian script.
I read them when I was in 5th grade, Mrs. Amway's class. I fell in love with nursing years before by listening to the Focus on the Family "People You Should Know" tape set. The one about Clara Barton was my favorite and so I loved these Cherry Ames books as well. They sit on the shelf in the hall with some of my other sets and classics.
Guess who I found curled up with "Cherry Ames, Student Nurse" Wednesday morning?
I think the glasses are doing their job, and she has been listening to that Clara Barton tape a lot now that I think about it. There will be many exciting nursing adventures to hear about in the next several weeks, I'm sure.
