Remembrance and Silence

Today marks the 18th anniversary of my brother's death.

My sister was teasing me about doubling up on my talking today so I'd be sure and use up my allotment and I remembered how she still owes our brother a huge sum of money because she bet him he couldn't be quiet for the rest of the trip to our grandparents' house and he did it! I'm wondering if I can collect on his behalf (she says she doesn't think so)!

I am going on a silent retreat this weekend. I've been wanting to do one since I first heard about them in the late nineties. It's been on my Unofficial Bucket List (the one I keep in my head) all this time. And now I'm doing it!

  1. I've never been on what I consider to really be a "retreat", Annie. Our church sponsers events labelled as such, but they usually involve recreation, shopping, and entertainment along with a daily dose of sermons. I quit them long ago. Hoping this one on your calendar meets your expectations and God touches you in a mighty way......


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
