Words from a Mother


This quotation is attributed to Mother Teresa. I am in

awe of her powerful messages to us all. She was such a

Gift from God, no one real person comes to mind, who

could equate to all she accomplished. She was a fiery

Super Woman!

That tiny-framed woman took a lot on her shoulders,

did not bend, did not complain nor flinch from the

afflictions that she touched with her bare hands.

We could all take lessons from her, on Love, Humility,

Walking the Walk and Talking the Talk. This along with

giving us a true role model. What Would Mother Teresa Do?

Emulate and reflect God’s loving embrace of all people.

I am posting my Sincere Sunday post today, a day early

since I may have grandkids for a whole 24 hours and may

not make it to the library at all on February 16, 2014!

A quick summary of Mother Teresa’s life will reveal

simple, humble beginnings. She was born on August 26, 1910

in the Republic of Macedonia. Considered an Albanian at

birth, she lived a godly life.

After attending school, she chose to, at age eighteen,

study for one solitary year at the Lareto Abbey. She

became a Religious Sister of the Roman Catholic faith.

When Mother Teresa died in Calcutta, India she had

served, touched and blessed thousands of needy, sick

and dying people. There is no exaggeration in that

number; possibly not nearly high enough of an estimate.

Her long life was dedicated to her beliefs, ending at

the age of 87, on September 5, 1997.

I think that it is a testament to her life, when you

see at the bottom of her biography, on the computer

that sends you to research others of her kind the

following names:

Mahatma Gandhi

Indira Gandhi

Nelson Mandela

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Princess Diana

Helen Keller…

Here is the quotation for this Sunday:

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is bliss, taste it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.”

I have no better words to live by.
