My name is Iris Margaret Yano. I was always well-liked and never really held much regard for things of the spiritual side until I was 18 and my then 16 year old sister tried to kill herself. While they tried to pump her stomach of the pills that she took, I found the chapel. While there a wise man sat next to me and prayed for my sister without me even telling him why I was there. That visit really shaped me to what I am now. Wanting to help otherís through their emotional problems became my prime focus since then, and what a better way to do that then by becoming a nurse? I want to eventually become a counselor for teenagers, but after college, work and saving up for grad school became top on my list, but I will make it towards my goal.
My family is small but loving. My parents were divorced when I was 6 and I have no real memory of my mother. I havenít seen her since the divorce and was raised mainly by my Dad. Other than him it was just me and my sister. It was a quiet but loving home, until about a year ago when he got married to someone else. I like her well enough. She is annoying sometimes but I can see how she makes Dad happy. I donít need to be around to take care of my Dad and sister anymore, so I moved to the island to take a break from it all. I never really moved that far from my hometown in southern Michigan, during my 28 years of life. I figured I needed to be a bit adventurous, so here I am. I miss them but I feel like I am here for a reason. I donít know what, but if I am supposed to be here I will stay.
I donít really date anymore. Nursing school was hard and back home there werenít any guys that interested me. I went to school with the ones my age; they werenít really great catches then. I believe that God has someone for me out there, I donít know where or how I am going to meet him, but the pieces will fall in place one day.
When I am not at work I enjoy reading and gardening. Flowers are amazing things that take up what little property I own. My favorite flowers are Morning Glories and of course Irises. I enjoy taking an early morning walk on the beach. The beach is one of the greatest assets of living on the Island. It is a wonderful to sit and pray or contemplate life. I like to spend time alone, but I am welcome to friends coming over for a glass of ice tea, cookies and a conversation. I can cook enough to get by, but thatís about it.
My days usually start early with a cup of hot tea and a walk on the beach. Depending on the season, weather and work schedule, I either go work in my garden, clean my cabin or work. Bedtime usually occurs later then it should.
My beliefs are important to me. I work hard to enforce beliefs into the parts of my life. I do not enforce my beliefs on people, rather on my situation. I try not to continually talk about them, but when they are a part of me, I canít help but mention them. They are my coping mechanism. They are what keep me going sometimes. I try to be positive and outgoing and having the beliefs I do makes me feel like I can do it.
