Unexpected Gift

I spent this summer in Wisconsin at my motherhouse, not something I had planned on.

To my surprise it turned out to be a summer embodying the many stages of religious life. We had celebrations of new novices, a Sister making first Vows, a Sister making perpetual Vows, a Sister completing her degree, 50th Jubilees, and funerals.  

I reconnected with Sisters and connected with “New Sisters” whom I didn’t know because they were out in mission.  I was given the gift to be fully present as Sister to my Sisters in assisted living.   I also met new lay people journeying with us in mission.  It turned out to be a summer of “unexpected gifts.” 

What was an unexpected gift or surprise for you this summer?
