Each morning Gerry, our facility manager, picks up the mail bag and heads for the Post Office. This morning he had a surprise waiting for him - Nicky was in the mail bag! Gerry had to smile and took the photo. For a moment, all the world's nonsense was forgotten as he extracted the cat from the mail bag. Anthony de Mello wrote in his book, The Prayer of the Frog, "Happiness and unhappiness are in the way we meet events, not in the nature of those events themselves." Think about it.

All Saints Sisters of the Poor added 7 new photos.
The Hilltop has been very busy these last couple of months. You can be certain that when we disappear for a time, it is usually because no one has the wherewithal to even think about writing even a small post! St. Gabriel’s is flourishing. We just completed the Archdiocese Vocations Weekend. The Novitiate is busy. Sr. Mary Charles is thriving at St. Martin’s. Over Christmas we attended a Christmas play in which she played the judge! Sr. Jane Clement had knee surgery on Dec. 13th and is mending very nicely. Sr. Margaret and I are getting ready to put the new St. Gabriel’s sacristy together, but that is another story. We had a bit of an ice storm this week and so I took a few photos. Please continue to pray for us. We are growing in numbers slowly but surely and that is good.

We think it is time for a break. So we turn to our resident cartoonist for another insight into the life of the Sister - In - Charge of the Kitchen.

The election is what it is. It stands to reason that not all people could be expected to be pleased. However, it is one thing to protest peacefully and quite another to succumb to the same level of behavior that made this election campaign so abhorrent to so many people. We would like to encourage everyone to give this new administration a chance. We have a role to play. Government is not just about “us and them”, it is about “we” and once again we have an opportunity to roll up our sleeves, learn how to become informed citizens, and take active roles in understanding the complexities of what it means to govern in a democracy. Our best weapon against the forces who would like to continue to inflame and divide us is prayer. Prayer is a powerful weapon. Pray for our unity, that those in leadership will be allowed to work for the greater good for all Americans and all to the glory of God.

We went out this morning to vote. Everything went smoothly except for a little mishap at the booth where I was helping Mother Virginia, who at 101 impressed quite a number of very nice fellow voters. The booth wobbled and I made the dreaded extra "mark" on my ballot. Sighing deeply, I escorted Mother to a chair across the gym after which I started over again with a new ballot. The poll workers could not have been nicer and the Sisters who had to wait for me found it all rather amusing. However, what should have taken about 15 to 30 minutes took over an hour, all because of the dreaded extra "mark"!
