Our Lives Connected



                                                    -Sr. Marie Clarkson, OLM


Sr. Clarice Garvey and Sr. Frances Brady, visit one Monday afternoon.

                   Remind me

O mother


whose nurturing spirit

lives connected

with all of creation

the past

the present

and all

that is yet to come

Sr. Margaret Walsh, OLM and her niece, Peggy and husband David, and her sister, Denise

                             remind me

of the energy

   of life                                                         empowering me

 to stand tall

 facing gales

or gentle breezes

          to walk softly

Sr. Mona Kelly, OLM is having a good visit while waiting for a BINGO game.

over grassy plains

 or rocky hill

  to embrace

all that is yet to be

  remind me

O mother

of my loving cenre

my tender core

remind me

Sr. Cecile Turner, OLM visiting with Sr. Frances Brady and Esmeralda Gonzales looks on.

of the newness

of each moment

of blessing received

and blessings


of the blessing

that I am


Remind me

O mother.
