So where have I been, and what have I been doing the last several months?
Keeping very busy, to say the least. As I’ve written before, I’ve been dealing with kidney stones, the large variety that would never pass the normal way. Over the past year, I’ve had many treatments to dissolve them, blast them, and so on, but finally, they had to go in and extract them. That’s been done over the last two months, and I’m finally free, but still recuperating.
Secondly, I’ve been discerning for the diaconate. The month of June is the culmination of the process to see if they’ll accept me for the next step, which is 5 years of bi-weekly school days Needless to say, I may need all my creativity and time to keep up with the school schedule.
This has been enough to keep me busy. And, of course, there’s family activities. I have a granddaughter who is stationed with her sailor husband in Nagasaki now. And now comes the summer, with family coming in and out. And I’m going on a pilgrimage this summer, to Majorca, Barcelona and Compostela. Always busy, me. 🙂
