Community life is hard. You’re together all of the time. It can get stressful. We’re supposed to pray together, eat together, and work together.
We took this picture one night, after we had worked all day and realized that we needed to go grocery shopping. It was after dinner, and somehow it was decided that we should wear hats to the grocery store. We were silly. But I think we brought smiles to some faces. We had a few strange looks too, but that’s okay. It is just one of the ways that our community has been able to bond. We’ve bonded through prayer, meals, service, but also through being able to laugh and smile with one another.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
– Mother Teresa
