Very rarely do I ever hear a physician say that they were really glad that they went through the process of becoming one.
In fact, 9 times out of 10 I hear the opposite.
I hear statements of regret—for not being with family, for a failed marriage, for a squelched life, for a loss of faith, for a gain of cynicism…
But the other day, after completing a practical final where you and your partner are in an exam room demonstrating what you know, we found ourselves talking to the professor.
He asked us our summer plans—he said make sure you rest for a few days.
As the announcement came that we must leave that room for the next “victims” to enter, he simply said “Hang in there. It’s worth it. It really is.”
“Life and death are in the power of the tongue…” Proverbs 18:21
