Sister And sister....

This is my sister Jeanie with Sister Virginia.  All the retired Sisters(Nuns) are being moved to a different retirement center. Jeanie used to work at the Academy taking care of the infirmed Sisters. I know my sister will miss them. The academy is closing down soon. That is so sad. I pray they keep the grounds and not sell them off to developers. I think there's just not enough money to keep all the old places running.
 Sister Virginia is a kind soul. We are not Catholic, but we were raised near their church. Two of my grandkids went to school at Saint John's. I can remember hearing all the kids playing at recess, when I lived in town. Two blocks away !! If you ever drive by a school at recess....roll your windows down and listen to
kids at play. I like to hear them having some fun.   :):)


  1. It is sad to hear about places that are closing. Seems like it is a sign of the times.

    How nice it is to be able to walk with your sisters.

    Have a good Friday!

  2. This is sad news.

    Our first home backed up to an elem. school play ground. It was always delightful to hear the kids playing!

  3. I sure hope developers don't get their hands on the property either. It's so sad. I never thought of kids at play like that before, but I'll try it next time I pass by a school yard.

  4. Hi Susie, I agree that the laughter of children is a wonderful sound.

    In answer to the comment that you left on my site: I'm already trying to decide what I can do with the wreath this Christmas. The options are limitless. Thanks so much for stopping by, I do enjoy your visits, Connie :)

  5. I hope the retired nuns will remain together and will enjoy their new home. At that age moving can be emotionally hard. Prayers for a joyful future for these ladies.
