Anyway

I received an email recently with words attributed to Mother Teresa attached.  They are good words, as you’d expect, and worth a moment or two …..

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Martina McBride sings a song along the same lines.  I’ve used it before in the blog but will re-post the YouTube video here.  Maybe the tune and its message will stay in our heads today and beyond …..
