If the Shoe….

by Sr Nunother  

My morning meditation consisted of this cliche: If the shoe fits, wear it. Not in its usual context of accepting responsibility, but rather, in deciding to move forward. I recently was asked to return to a job I vowed I’d never do again. I’m qualified, have the necessary skills, and love many aspects of it. But having to sort between what I want (perfection) and what’s possible will be difficult emotional work. My feet are in the shoes and they fit well. With God’s grace, I’ll find the right balance.

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.
