New year, new thinking, new relationships
When I was in a performance group at BYU, we went to India where we had the opportunity to sing for Mother Teresa. We were in our sorta-nice touring clothes and we did our best. She was kind and gracious, thanked us and then said, "How lovely. Now, we could use some help with the newborns."
Songs and thoughts are lovely and can help motivate us. A scripture on the wall helps.
Kindness and caring for others - in a real physical way -- is better.
Please be safe this new year and treat everyone with respect -- even if you don't feel that they deserve it. Remember this from Mother Teresa...
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
