Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!  This is always a time for resolutions – lose weight, exercise, be more disciplined in our prayer life, etc.  But it is also a time for thanking God for all the blessings of the past year.  I thank God for the sabbatical I was given by our Sinsinawa Community and also the opportunity to serve the rural people of the Owensboro diocese by providing faith formation and spiritual events for them at their local parish.  

Most of all I am thankful that Sister Geri is beginning to recover from a serious back surgery she had on October 13.  It’s been a long, slow road for her and a new experience for me as a caregiver.  And yet we have not been alone on this journey.  Our Sisters in Kentucky and Tennessee have been a great support, as well as the many prayers and advice offered by our sisters across the community, especially Sister Marilyn Aiello, one of our community doctors.  What a wonderful perk of our lifestyle – we are never alone in the hard times of life because we are surrounded by a loving community. 

What are you thankful for this New Year?  Who gives your support in your life?

Peace and a Blessed and Happy New Year!
