I recently started reading a biography about Mother Teresa, and with Easter coming up on Sunday, I thought we could all learn something from this compassionate, selfless, and wise woman.
I have always deeply respected people who find the greatness and value in the small things over the ‘big’ things. The allure of the ‘big’ things – success, money, business, fame, power, self –frequently overshadows the ‘small’ things. We lose sense of what is true and what is right, prioritizing ourselves and forgetting to appreciate the miracles that come with simplicity. With her loving focus on the downtrodden, the forgotten, the children, Mother Teresa reminds us to be the best women we can be, even if our efforts seem ‘small’ to the rest of the world.
