The Living Expression of God's Kindness

Dear Readers,

Madame L is sick of hearing disgusting stories about the stupid behavior of arrogant and immoral politicians, of reading about tax cuts for the wealthy and increasing expenses for the rest of us, of being reminded so often of the human frailty that afflicts all of us, whether through our own behavior or that of others. 

If you are, too, you may enjoy reading these words from Mother Theresa:

"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor...Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."

Or, as Bill and Ted advised us, "Be awesome to one another!"

Best, 

Madame L

Boy I needed that today. The recent news has been very depressing. There are some really ugly-inside people out there who still haven't figured it out yet.

What a great quote! I mean both quotes are great. I'm going to print them and put them on my fridge.
