Prayer When Ya Need It, & Even When Ya Don't!

When I'm tired. When I'm feeling unsure of myself? When I miss my baby and its cutting me to shreds, and no one knows. When I cannot for the life of me figure out how I have a daughter in her 30's when I swear I'm still 30?

I think this is Mother Teresas prayer, not certain, but I use it anyway. Maybe a Catholic out there will know?
May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you..May you be content. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

Directly after this prayer is always cited Eleanor I dunno why? Its hard to be me?

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you will be critized anyways."

Eleanor... where are ya?

It is a prayer of Saint Theresa who is known as the Saint of the Little Ways, meaning she believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love. She is also the patron Saint of flower growers and florists. She is represented by roses.
