Thursday night I called the sisters that I had lived with in Topeka, KS two years ago, and on a whim and in surprise (as much to myself as to them) I got up early on Friday morning and drove to Topeka. I think my favorite moment was when I called Sr. Anna Marie from Kansas City and she realized that I wasn't kidding when I said I was only an hour away. They were moving a bunch of furniture so I was put to work. The time, although brief, couldn't have been any better.
I think I am in town now until the second week of July when Pat and I head to St. Paul to be part of of the first week of our congregational chapter. It will be fun to be with our sisters from all over. Until then, I think my suitcase will remain in my closet--we'll see.
