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. -Mother Teresa

Encouragement without doughnuts (it is possible)

Sometimes we have crummy weeks full of crappy things and yucky people. Sometimes just a day or even just a morning like that can throw me into a grumpy mess.  I have shared that I wrongly hide behind sugar (donuts!) and my my computer screen.

You know what? 
Occasionally, my computer is exactly the right place to be.

These are a few ladies who I love to 'hang out with' online. They don't mind if I 'visit' in my pj's while eating a doughnut. Thought you may want to visit with them too!
