Young at Heart

You’re never too old to be young (don’t you just love an oxymoron?)  A couple of sisters and I thought the sisterhood could use a boost of unifying energy. A Columbus Day/Oktoberfest/ pre-All Saints’ Day get-together seemed appropriate. We searched the attic and visited a local bargain store for fall decorations. I usually bypass the cute stuff and look for quietly elegant. This time, I couldn’t resist smiling scarecrows, paper tablecloths, and glitter-covered pumpkins. Our selections led to a lighthearted, spirit-lifting celebration for a sisterhood ranging in age from 25 to 85. Lesson learned: when God spins the direction dial to his liking, the result is far better than when I take control.

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.
