A little update from me to you-Sr. Carolyn

Posted by admin On February - 22 - 2013

Today KC was home doing some work so after trying to figure out how to do the blog posting and putting on pictures and failing again she came to my rescue.

For some of you who may not know, my father died before Christmas.  I was able to get home to be with my family.  He had a peaceful death.  He was 92 and had Parkinsons and dementia.

When I was home and also when I returned to the monastery, I was getting headaches every day and ended up in the emergency room with the biggest migraine I had every had with numbness on the left side of my body.  It was a bit scary.  I am now on medication that seems to be working and one med just for migraines.  So now I am back to as normal as I can be.

The good stuff is that the daffodils are out and they are my favorite spring flower.  I think they look like smiling faces on the hillsides, in the grotto and all over the monastery grounds.  We get cold then warmer temps so we enjoy the warmer sunshine days and try to get some outside work done.

It is lent as some of you know and God gives us something to work on and we don’t even have to ask.  That is OK with me.  I figure God knows better than I. So my prayer for you this day is that you will be open to God’s invitation to work in your life in whatever area God’s feels necessary to make you the best you can be.     Peace to all.  CarolynKburke 011

    Carolyn! I found you by accident and I am so glad that I did!! First, PLEASE accept my profound sympathy on the passing of your Dad. I will always remember him as a kind, considerate, gentle man who always had a kind word, a warm smile and was always so glad to see me. I will pray for him, for you, and for your entire family. I am saddened to hear the news of your illness, and I hope that this resolves itself soon…, sounds like it must have been quite frightening! I cannot believe that so many years have transpired since our CAP days. I hope that you are happy in your vocation in Kentucky…, do you ever see the ‘old gang’? I can’t picture where Martin is in relation to Lexington. I am now living in Anderson, South Carolina married ten years to a wonderful man who shares my faith and love for volunteerism…, it is a good match. God took Gilles too soon, but has given me a second chance with my Bob…., God is indeed good, and not a day goes by that I don’t thank Him for His blessings which also include a 25 year old son (Justin) and a beautiful daughter inlaw (Emily). How does one catch up on 30 plus years??? Again, just wanted to say hello! God bless you Carolyn….. Chris
