she's either in ecstasy or about to fall asleep :|

I'm sorry, but it looks to me like she's either trying to pull that rosary out of her nose, or put it up in there. Not a great angle...

Ok, I haven't figured this out... who are the sisters with the beautiful long blue veils? There's a pic on this page and I posted a pic of them on another.

If my house were clean, I would post a picture. I am a hermit Sister of the Order of Adoration and Obedience to Cats with Chronic Diseases (Anglican--but unofficial and recognized by no one). I wear secular clothes, but each of my cats has his/her own habit worn 24/7 and the cats' "habits" are both beautiful. The charism of of the order--both for myself and the cats--is unconditional love and total devotion. No yelling, no cross words, and our horarium involves frequent naps.

God created the birds of the air and the (cloistered) cats of my house and I try to love them as much as God does. My cats have taught me SO much about loving, and trusting without question.

I'm not physically able to contribute much to the world right now, so one of the ways I contribute is to give a loving home and provide good care to two cats with chronic diseases, one of whom was about to be euthanized because the vet couldn't figure out what was wrong. MY vet diagnosed the cat's illness in 5 minutes, and God-willing, my little girl cat has been healthy ever since. My male cat is 15, and has hyperthyroidism. I hand feed him when he won't eat, give him pills twice a day, and try to appreciate every minute I have with him, because I don't know how much time we have left--it could be 2-4 years, it could be tomorrow.

My husband left me after 13 years--my 15-year old male cat rarely lets me out of his sight. Guess which one taught me more about REAL love.

The Mother Superior at the Visitation convent in Chile was so cute when she told me about their day. (translated)

First we wake at 6 am,
then have a shower.
After our prayers in the chapel we have mass.
Then lunch
and then we have a nap!

She was soooo adorable!
