My Daughter, The Nun


I have come to the conclusion that my youngest daughter is in line to become a nun.

This year at my daughter’s school they are required to do 20 hours of service for their religion class. A group of the 4th grader girls got together on their own and decided to go visit a nursing home. They got a teacher to sponsor them for this and asked for parents to chaperon them. So yesterday after school we went to a nursing home. The girls sang a bunch of Halloween songs and played a game of catch with the residents using balloons. Most of the girls were very timid and my youngest is usually very shy. I was shocked yesterday when she just took right to the residents. She had a blast with them and even asked me when she can go back.

This is just one example of why I think she is going to be a nun. There are many more!

This is a photo of a cross that she made from part of our old fence last year. It hangs in my bedroom.

She takes her Rosary beads with her every time we go to church and she says the Rosary. Now mind you, I never new how to do the Rosary until she taught me how!

Maybe she will not choose to become a nun, maybe she will just play one on TV instead!

  1. It takes a special person to do well with the elderly. You just can never tell with people. Isn’t it nice to feel that pride when a child does something this nice.

    Love the Flying Nun theme song.

    She is a bigger person than I am! Yes that feeling of pride is awesome! 🙂
