A Simple Formula

by Sr Nunother  

A sister received a gift of note pads, each decorated with one of these four words:  Live, Laugh, Love, Learn.  I dismissed the gift as a nicely designed bit of alliteration but the next morning, the words marched through my mind and declared themselves worthy of attention.  To live – a life rich in experience; to laugh – and inspire joy in others; to love – as God loves us; to learn – grow in knowledge and wisdom.  Four small words to keep me busy for a lifetime.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
