On our way to pick up our young Picassos from their art class, Lady E, Little T and I saw three Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity walking down the street. I told the girls that these women are "Mother Theresa's sisters" and that they spend their days -- their lives -- feeding people who are hungry and taking care of people who are sick. I explained that Mother Theresa started the order in India, and that she did small things with great love, and that we are blessed to know about her.
Little T got very excited, craning her neck to see the three women as they walked.
"Oh Mama, I like those ladies! I would like to see those ladies every day!"
"I like them too, Little T."
"I love them! Cuz I would love to have all that food they give people, because I LOVE FOOD!"

Dear Sisters, I promise I will teach her and her siblings to love you for much more and to follow your loving example wherever they are.
