Love and Home

"Love begins at home and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action"

Mother Teresa

We soaked in the life of Mother Teresa last year and her gift of service to humanity. I could hardly make it through the book without a kleenex. She served and served and made a difference. In some way that is the simple and complicated call on my life. To serve and serve and make a difference. When I wake, my thoughts are immediately on me...hmmm why does that happen so easily? I have to daily put into practice thinking of others and their needs. I have four little people that look to me to walk beside them every day. I can make a difference, just let me have my coffee first!! he he !! Seriously, I see it in my friends and my beautiful sisters - service to others and willingly. They are my inspirations too!! Thank you....

I love this. It's so true.
I'm learning to not be selfish in the morning and to get my head around serving my family first :)
