3 weeks ago was spring break, and I took a trip to Connecticut to go on a mission/retreat with the Sisters of Life. This community of religious women is so full of joy, and it was wonderful to be able to spend 10 days in their presence. The 90 of us on break together heard talks, played games, helped to renovate a house in Harlem, took a "Saint Tour" of New York City, and spent a lot of time in prayer. While it wasn't a "discernment retreat", the Lord was certainly very present to all of us, but in very different ways. I had a lot of adventures and learned so many lessons during that week. I will have to share some of them later.
This past weekend, my household was on retreat together. We take a weekend away from campus once a semester to gather as sisters, pray, and grow. These three days were the best we've experienced together, and once again, the Lord was truly present with us. Again, we prayed and played together, and even got a cow named after our household while we were there!
Looking ahead, I am planning for the Triduum here at school, preparing for an event for a few thousand people. And then, its only a few weeks until graduation. I'm constantly blown away at how soon it is, and it's hard to believe that these four years are almost over. My fellow senior friends and I look at each other almost every day in disbelief- where did the time go?
But there is a lot to do between now and May 9th, graduation day. So right now, I'm looking at tomorrow, and the next day. One step at a time,, they say. The end will be here soon enough, and there's no need to rush it.
