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

Throw Back Thursday



2002

Yesterday found us celebrating again with this family. Instead of celebrating a marriage, we were celebrating a life. Sounds weird to say celebrate but that is what the family did, members stood up shared their memories about a man they loved. Although I personally had very little interaction with Uncle Jerry, I was emotional as I listened to his grandsons express their appreciation for his interest in their lives. He knew them. They knew him.


Less than a week before our first trip, I attended a funeral. We leave in less than a week for our second trip, and just attended a funeral. Ugh....don't "they" say these things come in threes?!?
