Mother Teresa: one of my faith heroes and childhood icons.
Now recognized as a saint, I believe.
When asked once what she thought the first thing she would say to God when she got to Heaven she replied "I think it will be 'You have a lot of explaining to do'"
This quote makes me feel SO much better.
Because there are those times when that's exactly how I feel. That there's just so much I don't understand.
It reminds me that Mother Teresa, while a giant in her faith, struggled just like I do.
I don't know why my friend was just diagnosed with cancer.
I don't know why my friend's father's spinal cord looks like swiss cheese due to a mass eating away part of his vertebrae.
I don't know why so many people are unemployed.
I don't know why...
But I do know WHO.
And that...that makes all the difference.
