Well, if I wasn't married and didn't have children I would certainly look into the religious life. According to Vision Vocation Match I would make a great Benedictine nun. Their motto is Ora et Labora: prayer and work. I love the practicality of the clothes, am willing to work hard, and have proven that I can sacrifice my own desires for the good of the community.
Today was certainly hard work. I had to hold Timmy for 3 hours straight and keep 4 other children under control while simultaneously tidying up the house for the home inspection. By the time the inspector, buyer, a friend, and two realtors left I simply had to escape with an hour long run. Some days I feel the religious life would be less stressful and more fulfilling. But most days I have a glimpse of what God wants for me and, while it involves practical clothing and sacrifice, it's not being a sister, it's being a mom.
