The Thoughts We Need

As a graduate student I was taking a more than full-time schedule of courses in an effort to obtain a degree by the end of the academic year. Less than six weeks from the completion of my last semester, I was confronted with a series of physical and emotional problems that seemed to make it virtually impossible for me to complete the demanding assignments.

There were classes to attend, papers to write, a thesis to be approved, and an oral examination to pass. I was commuting quite a distance to school—each day of class required a two-hundred-mile round trip. A journey I had made joyfully for almost a year now seemed an impossible burden.
