Quote from Mother Teresa (151.2)

I love this. A friend posted it on Facebook and I wanted to share.

These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one's self.

To mind one's own business.

Not to want to manage other people's affairs.

To accept contradictions cheerfully.

To pass over the mistakes of others.

To accept insults and injuries.

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation.

Never to stand on one's dignity.

To choose always the hardest.”

― Mother Teresa

This list of ways to practice humility are most of what I have struggled with.  I'm better on several of them, not so much on others.  I have a long way to go to reach true humility.

Hi Vickie. My week has been OK. I'm writing a new post today. If you can't read it while traveling, let me know & I'll email it to you.

I will be able to read, have iPad.

We did two college tours on way east, youngest loved both schools. Doing one on way home, next week.

Might do another round after middle is moved back to college and before high school starts for youngest.

Most of these are first visits for youngest. Some of them I have never been to the schools either. So far she is liking catholic schools better than rest (even though rest have been private). Will be interesting to see if that holds true for the rest on our list.
