I posted this in vocations already as I wasn’t sure where to put it.
I was wondering if you all could please keep me in your prayers? I’ve known for the past five years that I’m going to be a nun. The order I’m going to join wants their sisters to have a BA before they join. So in five years I’m going to go to New York and join the Sisters of Life. One of my friends is joining an order here in MI in about three weeks. Today was her graduation / going away party and she had a bunch of stuff in her room that she is giving away, and she was saying how this summer has really been about being with family and friends. It struck me that in five years, I’m going to have to say goodbye to all my friends and get rid of all my stuff. I know that’s really shallow but I was looking at my bookshelf and there’s a lot of books that I have loved for a really long time and will always love. Also I have a lot of CD’s because music is my life and it’s how I pray and how I pick myself up after a bad day. Also, getting rid of all my yarn…It’s going to be so hard!! Also my brother John has been going to school in Austria, getting his masters in Theology. He wants to go Notre Dame for his PhD, but if he doesn’t get in, he wants to go to Oxford. Plus they aren’t coming home this summer so it’s already really hard for me, but if he goes to Oxford, there will only be one or two years of him in the country and me still in MI. I know, besides the family, this seems really shallow but it just hit me all at once and I was just like O MY GOSH!!! It’s going to be so hard!!! Thanks for reading. It help a lot just to get this out. I’m really happy that He called me and I can’t wait but, it’s going to be so hard.
Totus tuus Maria!
