Itseh Crem

I'd like to share an anecdote about my maternal great-grandfather, Hartz Wechsler (my Baba's father).  It was, in fact, my Baba who first told me this story.
When my great-grandfather came to America, he saw quite a few ice-cream trucks go by.
"With all those trucks," he remarked, "this Itseh Crem must be a very wealthy man!"

Little Things (reposted)

In honor of the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux, I am reposting the following.

I love this quote from my Patron Saint, Therese of Lisieux, whose feast we celebrate today:
"Pick up a pin for the love of God, and you may save a soul."
How right, how wise! We may not be called to do great things,but we can do the little, everyday tasks for the love of God, and then how great, how valuable those little tasks become.
No work is menial if it is done for the love of God.
