“Often you see small and big wires, new and old, expensive electric cables that are useless, for until the current passes through them there will be no light.”
“The wires are you and me, the current is God. We have the power to let the current pass through us- to use us- or refuse to be used and allow darkness to spread”
I hope you like the first installment of “Who said this””
The above photos were taken of my mom who is 82 today and the quote was on the June 19th page of the book I referenced at the bottom.
My mother is the person I got the good Karma everyone senses when they meet me, my kindness and compassion, my generousity and talent of music and cooking from. She encouraged me in everything I did and because she passed her own talents and gifts and spirit to me like a mighty torch.
Anyone that met mom would call her mom after holding even a small conversation with her.
She was the heart or seed of where all goodness came from in our home and was the one who tried to make two boys act like men and taught my sister in I self respect and what integrity was.
I remember mom telling me how to walk and have good posture and looking at me before I would go out the door every day. It was annoying then but I miss it now. I can hear her words and what she would say to a given situation even though she is no where near.
Mom and my dad’s mother I called “Nanny” lived with us and became the two most influential people in my life.
I am working on being able to see and talk to my mother as I did when we were neighbors in the house we both used to live in. I never knew “family” would have the capacity to be so apathetic, maniacal or callous when it came to matters of her life and all my parents worked for, but they were.
My family are many but mom is the only one I am related to.
When everybody was taking things out of my mother’s house as though she wasn’t alive and had no say, I went in and took two things: this photo of her that was cut from a 16 x 20 picture in a fire that destroyed nearly everything mom had when she was 16.
She and I look alike, think alike and value people instead of things. If my siblings valued people instead of things, they would have been more sensitive and caring about me and my mother not thrown me on the street after living next to mom for 13 years! They would have asked mom, talked to mom, instead of showing up and taking her to an unfamiliar place-my sister’s house where she is today, making it impossible to see her or even talk to her on the phone!
I am sorry that this post has turned into a post centered around my mom, but if any of you can show me how I can mandate someone else from a caring organization-other than me being conservator, let me know.
This is wrong and though its hard for mom to express her own feelings or words, I have become her voice, her advocate fighting like a warrior to see that she gets all she is entitled to in life.
She has been my cheerleader, my inspiration and guiding force that has made me the Visionary I am today.
When the others have been blinded to what is good and what is kind and what is honest, I remain true to the values that were imparted by both my parents.

On June 19th, 2013 I will also wish my dear mother a Happy Birthday. I wrote her several emails with letters and pictures to give my nasty brother in law who unfortunately is power of attorney for her. (Was made that by my dad who is in heaven). Since he is no longer here, I think it would be fairly easy to remove him from power. The day I do it will be a very happy day to celebrate. Kind of like in the Wizard of Oz when the wicked witch dies. From the callous and hurtful way he treated me by evicting me from a house I had vested interest in and taking mom without telling me, having me have to file a missing person report to locate her…..is repulsive.
I help people and get joy from that and feel the light inside me burn bright when I do. The light that Mother Teresa spoke of in the quote.
Though it has been increasingly difficult to see you or even talk on a simple telephone, I love you not less but more.
I will be out to see you in Moreno Valley soon and we can share more special times.
Wait until you hear how well my web sites are doing. I couldn’t have done it without you.
I owe the best of who I am to YOU.
The answer to Who Said This is: Mother Teresa said this in her book called “A Guide to Daily Living: The Joy in Loving” compiled by Jayla and Edward Le Joly.
