Sister Sally, a Daughter of Charity, came by the store the day before Thanksgiving and was jumping out of her skin to tell us a story about the “Spirit of the Season.”
She came to the register at the bookstore and I immediately tried to help and screwed up her order for 10 minutes. Finally we got on the same page that she was trying to get a purple globe with five insert candles for her Sanctuary lamp during the Advent Season. I thought she was going for three purple and a pink for a wreath. Oops. Anyway, helped her out a little on the price because she had mentioned knowing it would “cost her” but they have an electric lamp and she just wanted the “real thing” during such a special season. I thing she’d always prefer the “real thing” and I agree. So she smiled and thanked me and said how much she loved the “Spirit of the Season.”
Right on the verge of not having meat for Thanksgiving and along comes the “Spirit of the Season.” I hope we all remember and appreciate our cities’ Sister Sallys.
