  1. Beautiful message, Therese. Thanks for sharing St. Teresa’s words and yours, too! “This too shall pass” is one of my favorite slogans. That and a few deep breaths can really help create a shift in moments when the mind wants to go down the rabbit hole. Thanks for all your great posts and inspiration! Many blessings, Beth.
