Do you ever wonder just what someone else does all day? On Monday, February 16, 2009, Benjamin Wideman, the originator of a series of ‘Day in the Life’ articles for the Herald Times Reporter, Manitowoc, WI and Jaslyn Gilbert, an award winning photographer of the same mid-size daily Wisconsin paper, were on assignment at Holy Family Convent, home of about two hundred Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity.
Now, the newspaper correspondents came in hopes of reporting just ‘what Sisters do all day’. Similarly, the Franciscan Sisters wondered what this crew “would do all day” among them. At day’s end, the Sisters felt blessed to witness a ‘day in the life’ of two dedicated professionals, who were sincerely inquisitive, strong in carrying the tools of their trade, keenly aware of detail in expression and surroundings, and genuinely delightful people.
Recall a time that you learned about how someone else lives their life.
