It's A Long Story: Part Six
I took the train from Near Philadelphia to Somewhere Even Nearer Philadelphia. I was met at the station by someone I had not seen in more than twenty years. We had lunch together. We talked and talked and then went back to her place for a further visit. She lives in a gorgeous place, a retirement center for nuns.
It was Sister Angela, the woman who introduced me to pastoral care and hospital chaplaincy back in 1986. I tried to tell her how important she has been to me, what an impact she made on my life. She didn't seem able to hear it. That didn't surprise me.
I gave her Bill's Baskets. It fits her bed perfectly and is exactly the right colors for her room.
It was such a good day.
