No Carbon Copies

by Sr Nunother  

Two other sisters and I were given Red Sox tickets for Christmas.  Our game is coming up and I’m researching transportation. I’d like to take the bus to Boston, the T to Fenway, and avoid parking space stress — chances are, I’ll be out voted. I already know it’ll be a great day as this is a yearly event, thanks to a wonderful friend. The two sisters and I get along well, which is probably a miracle. One is Italian Catholic, one episcopalian and I’m scottish Presbyterian. We range in personality from very outgoing and gregarious, to mildly adventurous, to me — introverted and careful. They’ll want to roam the ball park, move closer to the field, and perhaps hang over the rail to beg an autograph. I can’t wait to find my seat. One makes friends instantly, while I forge relationships over a number of years. (When I return from buying a Fenway frank, our whole row will know each other.) Did I mention our trio includes a Yankees fan? This fall I’ll put on my Red Sox slippers, she’ll grab her Yankee throw pillow and we’ll watch the playoffs. Somehow, like our life together, it all works.

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.
