Snow Down? No Slow Down

by Sr Nunother  

Storm warnings in the Convent create a (excuse the pun) flurry of activity.  The shoveling team mobilizes, shop sisters stock wood and check the generator, and the kitchen sisters inventory food staples, preparing for sixty home for lunch. Me? I indulge in short term unreality. I’ll sleep late, mosey down for a cup of coffee, then read by the fire (which someone else has blazing). Should the snow continue, I imagine board games, naps, and a leisurely snow walk. It never happens, and yesterday was no exception. I woke up early, my brain swirling with things I needed to do. The fire, nap, book, board games, and walk never materialized. It was a surprisingly normal day with one exception: the view from the window was outstanding.

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.
