Working together is one of the greatest bonding moments for us as sisters. When we work towards a common goal with one another while enjoying each other and sharing thoughts and prayers for success - we become joined together in a really life giving way. Today was a big fundraiser for our sisters and we worked all week, long hours, after school, in physically taxing conditions and... it was a huge success. Besides meeting our goals we grew in love, respect, and sisterly affection for one another. It was a wonderful week!

Last weekend we discussed our community life at our local house meeting. House meetings can be stressful sometimes, uncomfortable, and really grace-filled moments of peace and love for one another. This was one of those times. Identifying our strengths and weaknesses brought out all of those emotions. Sometimes recognizing the good makes you just as uncomfortable as recognizing the weakness. What I love about the sisters in this house though was made very obvious by our comments. Nearly everyone shared, without talking to one another in the beginning, that we appreciated the generosity in our house.
