Beach Walk

I met a butterfly today.  She walked with uneven gait and when she spoke, her words were difficult to define.  Her mother smiled and explained, “Could she pet your dog”?  “Her name is Liberty”, I replied, holding our little poodle within reach.   Her touch was light and gentle and her smile pure joy.  I met a butterfly today and I’m the better for it.

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.
