Photos from this weekend's retreat






This next one is of my friend Cindy's oldest daughter, Sr. Joseph Marie, holding Cindy's youngest child, Madeline Therese.  She is looking well, don't you think?

Just before we left, one of Una's favorite sisters gave her a special gift: an apron her grandmother had made for her long ago.  She explained that it didn't fit so well over her habit, and gave it to Una.  Una is so delighted to have it!

    unless really hit you square between the eyes as you walked thru the front door...
    which is usually what happens to me!

  6. These pictures are really beautiful; the surroundings are seem so peaceful. I am visiting from Allison's bolg (Totus Tuus). I love the picture of sister checking out how the apron fits.
