holy quotes 9

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.

Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

(What Teresa said.) Yes, MP, that's it exactly. Today I went to the chiropractor, and the receptionist thanked me for "bringing joy" into the office. How kind of her--and her comment made my day. But I realised a simple thing: I'm always happy when I go there--who doesn't like feeling better after an adjustment and/or a divinely inspired massage?--and so I tend to arrive in an attitude of sweetness and light (according to them, anyway).

I love being alive, walking through my neighbourhood, and talking to people. Maybe your quote was about work, too, but I think because I love "just" walking around, being shows. :)
