Three Days – Three Quotes

This is a part of a networking activity between bloggers. This particular activity involves quotations. The first day’s quote is one by Mother Teresa, and it is:

“I think, love begins at home.”



Mother Teresa said in this quotation something I believe wholeheartedly. There are times when I beat myself up for not having a special cause. Or I get angry with myself because I don’t go to a nearby school and read to the students. I am, after all, a former teacher. And even though I wrote about it just this week, I have not entered even one of my dogs in the Service Dog Training School.

But St. Teresa has said exactly what I have thought for a long time, and that is “charity begins at home.” That being said, I also believe the quote that says, “Charity begins at home, but should not end there.”

Don’t follow my lead and become masochistic because you believe you are not doing enough for the “world.” Let your helpfulness, generosity of spirit, honesty, forgiveness, and acceptance begin with those whom you love and to whom you are closest. There will come the time when you will feel led to “let your light shine in the world.”


The rules for the Three Day – Three Quotes challenge are as follows:
1.A quote will be assigned each day for three days.
2.Three different nominees will be notified each day (no repetitions).
3.Thank the person who nominated you.
4.Inform the nominees.
