Blessed Sisters Of St. Ahd


Recommended Posts

This may not be the correct forum for it, if so, of course please move it – but I had a thought: there is hope for the rapidly aging stay at home daughters. The Botkins, poor Sarah, the Zeses, the Ahthelifers and more.

And it is – so perfect – so applicable – so full of potential! – A convent.

Sisters of the stay-at-home daughters, reverentially known as St. Ahd.

Anybody who's familiar with nuns over the past century or so knows that they are far from the sweet, meek, ethereally forgiving types that Audrey Hepburn (RIP!) portrayed in "A Nun's Story."

They get hospitals built, they get orphanages built, their hospitals compete with the best corporate ones, they strike - even now - awe and a benign fear into those they come in contact with. How could they not? They are women on a mission from God.

Best of all, they are independent as far as they want themselves to be. They know how to raise money, how to get things done, and most of the ones I have encountered seem to really enjoy life!

I saw Poor Sarah in action one time, getting Mary and Anna into line at a Maxsales event. It was time for them to go on stage and they were dallying. Poor Sarah would have none of that! Sisters of St. Ahd have authority and know how to use it.

We know that the Ahthelifers can dig up yards of pipe and septic tanks on their own more or less.

The Botkins know from publishing. The Zes gals have direct experience with hospitality and apartment management.

And best of all, while they do check in with whatever priest or monsignor has been assigned as their – I don't know what the church calls it – these women generally work independently and on their own steam. No overbearing, weird-ass biological father looming over them and saying where and when and how and with whom they may go.

I thought of this in a clever moment – more or less – but the more I think about it, these women could really make a difference in the world! And again, they would be respectful of, but not kowtowing to, their bio-dads.

It's Less likely than Jaunty John Maxwell joining the Kilty Pleasures, I know. But boy – would I love to see this happen. ( John dancing, I wouldn't mind, either! )

Would be nice but I can't see the Botkins really caring about actually making a difference in the world. The nuns I know are running homeless shelters- the ones that turn no-one away including people who've been thrown out of every other shelter in town. They're teaching at really tough inner city schools and actually helping those teenage mothers. The Botkins couldn't handle any of that. Those poor people often smell bad and use unladylike language...

Lol I wish! I would love to see some fundie sisters or nuns.

I wonder if they could truly serve the poor though. Could they care for AIDS patients? Are they resourceful enough to find a single mother affordable housing? Could they assist felons in finding work?

I honestly don't know if they have it in them. Sure they serve their own, but outsiders?

It's a nice thought. I worked with Nuns when I worked at a home for mentally handicapped adults. We can snark on the Catholic Church all we want but those women were DEDICATED to the residents there. My sister lives there and I have peace of mind becuase I know how hard they work and they will advocate for her.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
