Mother Teresa was born on 26 august,1910 in Macedonia.She was the celebrated mother of the poor and the helpless and she perfectly defined motherhood. Serving miserable was her motto of life and she just loved to help the miserable. She believed that It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
