Thanksgiving this week and the shopping days of Christmas...
In a stress-filled world, take time to breathe!
The late Father Joseph Champlin, a noted author, shared some wisdom about demands placed upon us and the stress that often results.
He remembered Mother Teresa who once was asked: "Do you ever feel overwhelmed when you see so many little babies or deathly sick persons abandoned in the street? Are you sometimes stressed out by the countless demands placed upon you?"
She responded: "No. You can only do what you can do."
Her words might help if you are rushing to prepare a holiday dinner or shop for what seems an endless list of family and friends.
Or maybe feeling tense with so many things to do and not enough time in which to do them.
You can only do what you can do....
