  1. You are fantastic and you know it! Thanks by the truck-loads. This entire process is awesome. Are you coming to the DIA in Adrian, Michigan next July; we missed you in Racine this year.
    PEACE! HOPE! JOY! for always, but especially during the coming month of November.

    PRACTICE. Take gentle good care of yourself; you are in our prayers. sme – Sister Mary Ellen Paulson, O.P. and Sister Paula Marie Jarosz, O.P.

  2. Thank you, Mary Ellen and Paula Marie. Actually I was there in Racine this summer. Sorry that we didn’t get properly introduced. I’m not sure that I’m able to make it this coming year to Adrian. It looks like I have a calendar conflict. Blessings to you! Pat
