I like to put quotes around my studio, little reminders to keep me on track. Recently I came across some quotes from Mother Teresa a very special person. When I was about 10 I had the privilege of meeting Mother Teresa. The nuns who taught us were from the Sisters of Charity, Mother Teresa’s order. So when she came to Vancouver for a visit she stayed with them at the convent just up the street from our school. At the time I really didn’t know who she was this little women with kind eyes. I remember the nuns where in quite a flap organizing us all and making sure we were presentable. Our uniforms had to be spotless our shoes polished, we practised the hymns we were going to sing over and over. We were ready! Standing at the front of the church we did our best to sing in tune and then Mother Teresa very quietly walked along shaking hands. When my turn came she took my hand and smiled at me nodding. Somewhere deep down I knew she was special and that I should always remember this moment.

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” Mother Theresa
