Now I Know
In the 7th grade in public school, I had to take a test that would give the guidance counselors information to help them determine my areas of interest and strengths so that they could guide me in taking the classes and acquire the information I would need for my future career. When I was called into the office to go over the results of my test, they were a bit uncertain of how to "guide" me. I told them I wanted to be a missionary, perhaps a missionary pilot. The results of my test? "Is mechanically minded but should not operate heavy equipment." I don't remember that the conversation was very helpful other than encouraging me to take a foreign language. But I do remember thinking, "Mechanically minded? How helpful is that to a girl?" It just hit me after coming through the Christmas season! God knew that I would have three boys and that I'd spend several years of my life reading Lego© manuals!
