I have a friend who has said they would help me out with school. She is a retired nurse who has helped out may people with their schooling. I was talking to her about a scholarship I NEED to get. She asked when will I know if I have it. I told her mid June. She said does in provide a stipend? I told her it did. She said If you don't get it then I will pay for your school and give me an income. I don't know how to react!! Right now I work for her and she treats me like a queen. She treats EVERYONE like a queen. I just don't know how to say YES I'll take your money and by the way I can't work for you any more because I'll be to busy with school and kids and cows and pigs. I live on a farm.
I know it is not really a problem but for me I have never been able to take money from someone. I have always worked for it.
What if I flunk out of school? What if I'm a horrible student?

I am in the same boat. Someone I work with is a nurse but no longer practices nursing. She has been my biggest supporter. She encouraged me to apply to school, made suggestions during the application process, etc. I have a 3.8 GPA but almost found myself not returning to school this summer because I couldn't afford it. While chating on day at work I was telling her about my situation and she immediately called my school and paid the bill in full. She strongly believes in my ability to succeed and doesn't want money to stand in my way. I just hugged her and thanked her as often as I could. I also strive to continue to do well because I could never let her down. She is an angel.
Accept the money. Remain humble and DO YOUR VERY BEST!! Make her proud!
