Wise Words from a Wise Woman-Part 2

One day I met a lady who was dying of cancer in a most terrible condition. And I told her, I say, "You know, this terrible pain is only the kiss of Jesus--a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you." And she joined her hands together and said, "Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me."
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

I have Mother's Teresa's book of quotes next to my bed stand.
Each phrase is like a precious morsel of wisdom.
Thank you for this - hope your family is doing well (figuratively and in reality :)
Lots of hugs!
