Recreation, Capital R

On Wednesday afternoons, the sisters have recreation – as in sports. I recently joined my first volley ball game in four decades.  A younger sister, serving low line-drives two inches above the net, looked in my direction and unleashed another one. I dug deep, summoned my inner athlete, and leaped to meet the ball. Unfortunately, the ball met me, ricocheted off my stomach and out of bounds.  Pride shattered.   I said all the right things – “I’m fine, didn’t hurt a bit, great serve, go team”.  But truthfully? Next week I’m hoping for rain.

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.
