Have you ever heard the old song that goes “The more we get together, the happier we’ll be”? Well, that’s certainly true for us Sisters of Notre Dame after two years of limited visiting and traveling. This summer our sisters are putting extra effort into creating opportunities to get together. On Wednesdays, for examples, the sisters living at Notre Dame Academy invite guests to join them for their weekly picnic. There was special delight in seeing sisters who minister hundreds of miles from their Toledo home base. Similarly, last week nine gathered around our dinner table, tripling the number who live here. Such almost spontaneous gatherings engage our interest: “I wonder what she’s been doing.” They reinvigorate friendships: “Remember when…” They incite outbursts of laughter: “Yes, it really happened that way!”
Don’t let the summer go by without getting together. You and your guests will be a lot happier.
