So I was on the US Postal Service Website today to order nice stamps for our Christmas Cards, and I wondered how in the heck I missed the fun unveiling ceremony for the Mother Teresa stamp which was held in my own backyard at the National Basilica on September 5, 2010.

Then I remembered, "Oh yeah, on that day my Teresa was still dying at our local community hospital."

Guess that was a good reason to skip Mother Teresa's big party! :-)

On other news from the US Postal Service, did you catch that from 1978 to 2009 the "traditional" stamp has always honored the Madonna and Child. For some unexplained reason, in 2010 we've suddenly switched to honoring a generic angel? Anyone have any information on this? I like sending my Mom on my mail!
