On this, the anniversary of Mother's birth, I am reminded that she left this world on the anniversary of my birth. Today I was reading a daily reflection sent to me from my friend who works at a Catholic hospital. It asked the question: how does the work you do benefit anyone other than yourself? I might take that a step further and ask: how does the work that I do benefit me spiritually? I'm not so sure of the answer. Mother Teresa never had to ask herself that question. It's something for me to think about.
