One of my favorite resources on-line is Lisa Hendey’s CatholicMom.com. I met Lisa many years ago at the first Catholic New Media Celebration in Atlanta. She was moderating the blogging panel and I thought, wow, is this woman really as nice as she seems to be?
Yes, she is.
Rumors of her diva-like qualities, rumors, I confess, perpetuated on Catholic Weekend and totally undeserved. She’s a peach. A pussycat. A sweetheart. A delightful…well, you get the picture.
Every once in a while she’ll have a contest over on her website. All you have to do is post a comment on a blogpost and voila! Through the magic of very complex algorithms that only Stephen Hawking or Data can understand, she draws a winner.
Cue this whimsical (and a little quirky, I’m not gonna lie) bobble-head of Mother Teresa!!!
I won this neat little kitschy conversation starter, and knew I had to share it with you. I think I’ll carry her around with me for a while, but I have this crazy idea that she could be a fun little Flat Stanley project, only, not flat, bobble-headed.
Whadya think? I’d be happy to send it to anyone wanting a picture with her. The catch is, you have to send me a picture, and you have to mail it to the next person requesting her bobble-headed grandeur. I’ll post the pictures here.
Oh, and you should commit to praying a rosary for the person who sent it to you. I mean, it is Mother Teresa, after all.

You know, Maria and Jeff are the only ones saying you’re a Diva…I’m just putting that out there.
Guilt by association. Steve is equally a gentleman, and it’s his fault, too.
Send her to Colorado and I’ll take her skiing on her way west!
Ooh, me! I want her to visit! What a great idea!
I think this is an excellent idea!
Send La Madre to Chicago!
This is too cute! Maybe Mother Teresa would like to come to Michigan this winter? I’d show her a good time!

You always make me smile. Always.
