If you’ve been following this blogspot, you’ve read about our Sr. Priscilla’s profession of final vows. What a gift to have been there to celebrate the event with Priscilla and many of our sisters! In the midst of a very busy week, I managed to contract an eye infection. I am so grateful for a caring doctor who diagnosed the problem, prescribed treatment for it, and even gave me a follow up call today to ask about my well-being. I am also thankful for the increased energy I am experiencing today after healing has begun. I am grateful to be in the midst of my Dominican sisters who have supported me even when I wasn’t feeling well.
Another surprise event occurred a couple of days ago as I was sitting in the doctor’s office. One of my biological sisters called to ask something of me. I was most honored with her request, and I am ever grateful for the relationship we have formed as adults. We have learned to honor and respect each other’s choices and unique faith journeys. The sibling rivalry of childhood is a thing of the past. Another gift!
For what are you grateful?
Are you called to experience a relationship with many sisters?
