Day 27 WEGO blog prompt: Write about a quote that inspires you.

Several years ago, my sister gave me this lovely glass paperweight. When I look directly into it, I see this quote by Mother Theresa: "You are greater than you know."

I love this.

It makes me feel......hopeful. Comforted. I feel as though there is someone out there that has taken stock of me and my potential, and that somehow I have met their expectations.

That I have the ability to be a better person, a better wife, a better mother, a better human being. That even though I am '50 something years old and struggling with a disabling disease, I still am capable of creating something better within and of myself.

That I can still learn more, love more, and be more.
