Have you ever stopped to think about the twists and turns your life makes? I have been reflecting more on this lately, I think it is because I am getting close to a milestone birthday and my youngest is going to college. When I was in college I had such grand plans to make huge differences in our social service system in my career as a social worker. After twenty five years I fear I have become part of the system and now I am counting the years and months to retirement.
My oldest son is following in his father’s footsteps and has joined the military. My youngest son wants to get a degree in business. Most of the past year he has been preparing for business school admission. Neither my husband nor I have any background in business so we have not been able to help him. My brother-in-law has been very successful in the insurance business and so he has offered to help our son with the business school admission. This is quite a competitive area and we are finding that it is one of those cases that who you know can have a great impact on getting in.
