FEELING BLESSED

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

-- Mother Teresa


This quote is near and dear to my heart. Not just because it is a great quote, but because it was given to me directly from one of the Sisters at the Mother Teresa Center in 2019 to be used in Chapter 5 of my book.



You see, during the editorial and legal review with my publisher for my book, ๐™ƒ๐™š๐™–๐™ก ๐™๐™ž๐™ง๐™จ๐™ฉ. ๐™‡๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š ๐™Ž๐™š๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™™. ๐™๐™๐™š ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™˜๐™š๐™จ๐™จ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ฅ๐™จ ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง ๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™›-๐™๐™š๐™–๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™–๐™›๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง ๐™™๐™ž๐™ซ๐™ค๐™ง๐™˜๐™š, I was told I could only use a Mother Teresa quote if I obtained permission.


I will have to admit, I felt intimidated thinking I would have to reach out to the Mother Teresa Center for approval. We are talking about ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฎโ€ฆ Saint Teresa of Calcuttaโ€ฆ a Nobel peace prize winner.

I felt the pressure was onโ€ฆ this chapter better be great if I was submitting for approval.


After a very sweet back-and-forth with one of the sisters at the Mother Teresa Center, she not only gave me permission to use a quote, but after reading the chapter, suggested an even better quote than I had originally selected (the one I shared above).


With that said, ๐—œ ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฝ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ. For me, and if nothing else, I feel Chapter 5 in my book is blessed.๐Ÿ˜‡ And with reviews like the ones to follow, I am happy I followed my heart and published the book with the goal that it would at least help one.
