Mother Teresa

One of my heros is Mother Teresa.  Last summer (2007) I went to Rwanda and visited an orphanage she started.  The Sisters of Mother Teresa give their lives so that others may be more comfortable, may find solace and perhaps love.  When the big doors of the compound open each morning they never know who will be waiting there.  They do not turn anyone away. That visit to Rwanda with Immaculee Ilibagiza and an eclectic group of new friends changed my life forever. There is so much goodness in the lives of the selfless women who live there, who only live to serve others who are less fortunate.  

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.  Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
-Mother Teresa-
