…after waiting about an hour and a half, mary, michelle and i finally got on our megabus trek…and we are on our way to philly! woohoo! yup, goin’ out to see sr. grace and sr. mary lou…we love it! 🙂
coming back from new jersey this past weekend, only to repack and get ready for a thanksgiving holiday in philly. gotta love the travelling! tonight was stressful, not gonna lie. it was a situation where people were shoving, people were annoyed, and while we were trying to exert the strongest bits of patience, at the same time, it was quite unfortunate when there was no real system of how things were to run. and THAT was unfortunate and frustrating.
yesterday i had my meeting with my spiritual director, and it was wonderful! i told her about my past week’s experience with the exercises, and i told her some of the revelations i had…a revelation, a vision, just good moments. moments where i felt very close to the Spirit…such beautiful and blessed graces to receive, and so thankful to have received them. that’s for sure. and…drum roll please…i started my 19th annotation yesterday! i got my first scripture passages and exercises, and learned the first week’s theme…sin in the world. yeah, not so much warm and fuzzy anymore, but what better time, than now…right when it’s advent, to prepare the way? so excited! yay!
my mom sent us zucchini bread and crabs and empanadas. i love receiving packages! yay! 🙂 happy thanksgiving everyone! there is much to be thankful for!! 🙂 more updates to come.
life is good. smile lots, and love big.
