No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work
The other day I came across this absolutely marvelous quotation from Mother Teresa. Now I think Mother Teresa is one of the true heroes of our times. She was totally amazing and helped so many people.
This simple little statement made me smile. I guess I have been a person who listens to what people say, but I seem to always do things the way I want them done. I am quite sure I am different than a lot of other people.
Take my gardens for instance, I love the patch of Queen Ann's Lace that started growning in my front yard. One year I sprinkled some wild flower seeds in a small patch of dirt in the front of the house. For a year nothing came up, then a few Queen Ann's Lace appeared. Now there is a fine bit of wild flowers just growing. I will have to thin them out next year if they come back, but I find them totally beautiful!
My other flower gardens are sort of haphazard, and right now are overcome with grasses, which are just too persistent, which I haven't had time to remove because I have been totally consumed with getting Regena ready for her move to LA and spending a lot of quality time with her doing fun things.
Now I will have time to attack those grasses.
So thanks Mother Teresa for such words of wisdom and for all the help you gave people for your life.
