So I thought I'd offer just two of the many gifts that have fallen into my lap(top) this week.
1. Rita A. Simmonds reports from Brooklyn with a Mother Teresa story:
One day, Mother Teresa was asking a baker for some bread to feed the hungry children in her orphanage. The baker was furious with her request, not only did he turn her down, he spat at her.
