Ten Years Ago Tomorrow

Blessed Mother Teresa died.

I clearly remember hearing the news out on the street from my neighbor. It was one of those rare "news" events that tended to draw people together.

Here is one of her many wonderful quotable tidbits:

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Lots more quotes can be found here

I was expecting Terri at the time and Mother Teresa became one of her patron saints (along with St. Therese, who was named a Doctor of the Church about a month later).
