The Mother of all Lists

I love a good list and this has got to be the Mother of all Lists!  One of the things that I love about lists is that they keep me focused and this one is no exception.  
Wouldn't the world be a better place if we all worked at checking off a few of these things?  Well, it sure had me looking into the mirror of my soul and wincing just a few times...ouch!  Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, please pray for me.
Word of Warning...This list should not be applied to toddlers.  They are the exception to all rules:)

Mother Teresa's Humility List:
1.   Speak as little as possible about yourself.
2.  Keep busy with your own affairs and not those of others.
3.  Avoid curiosity.
4.  Do not interfere in the affairs of others.
5.  Accept small irritations with good humor.
6.  Do not dwell on the faults of others.
7.  Accept censures even if unmerited.
8.  Give in to the will of others. 
9.  Accept insults and injuries.
10. Accept contempt, being forgotten and disregarded.
11. Be courteous and delicate even when provoked by someone.
12. Do not seek to be admired and loved.
13. Do not protect yourself behind your own dignity.
14. Give in, in discussions, even when you are right.
15. Choose always the more difficult task.

Be sure to check out Truth and Charity for a thought provoking 3-part reflection! 


  1. Oh my! That is a list! Wonderful, Tiffany!

  2. I just printed off that list, I think I've seen it before, but I need lots of reminders! Thanks Tiffany!

  3. What a wonderful list! I absolutely love Mother Teresa and all of her teachings. I hope you are having a wonderful week, Tiffany :D

  4. I think I've flunked that list. But I'm printing it off so I can re-take that test at a later date!! thanks for sharing this, Tiffany!!

  5. Thank you for sharing that. I as well, fail with a BIG F. Have a Blessed Easter!

  6. That is quite a "to do" list! It seems like one of those that should be framed and hung on the wall. I could use to read it every day.
