The lovely spring weather reminded me of years past when I was in school during final exams time. I wanted to enjoy the great outdoors but was preoccupied by the task at hand. I knew I’d get through finals, but they were still stressful. I just wanted to hurry up and get done, but time crawled at a standstill pace.
So too with today! Time passed so slowly as I went through yet more tests and appointments. The end is so close, which makes the waiting even harder. I’m ready for this to all be over.
This evening a group of volunteers grilled hamburgers and treated us with tasty side dishes. They were from the hospital’s finance department, and we joked with them that they had a vested interest in our well being.
I sat at table with a group of the regulars I’ve gotten to know – sort of our Last Supper. We’ve shared so much over these weeks, and I continue to take inspiration at people’s faith and courage.
One thought on “Fr. Steve’s updates”
Know what, Father Steve..? You are not JUST a priest..you are fantabulous, awe inspiring,exceptional, outstanding, etc.,etc., and you are also a SALESMAN..!
I wore out my rosary praying for you..so had to order a new one this week…From the museum there..! It promises to be beautiful and STRONG.
Meanwhile “little prayers” from us will be covering you..
Love and Hugs..
