Mother Teresa

She's actually the theme of my design for this week's derby at shirt.woot.com. I've been doing some research on her and I've been seriously impressed. I'll add the design once it's done (hopefully some time tonight).

In the meantime, here are some of my other favorite quotes from Mother Teresa:

"Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired."

"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love."

"Intense love does not measure, it just gives."

"Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them."

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."

"The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done."

"We can do no great things, only small things with great love."

"We, the unwilling,led by the unknowing,are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much,for so long,with so little,we are now qualified to do anything with nothing."

I hope Felix is doing better. I just hate seeing children in that kind helpless condition. It makes me sick to my stomach cause you want to help them but don't know how. All the best with everything and thanks for keeping us all updated on things. Don't give up cause he will get better.
