~Mother Teresa

Thank you, Nancy Francisco for posting this one on FB several days ago…[as an aside, Nancy and her husband, John, and I graduated HS together in 1960…yes, 1-9-6-0 ! Feel free to do the math.]) Anyhow, back to Mother Teresa…

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

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

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

[I loved and always will love this woman for all she has inspired in me and, hopefully, in all of you as well. She was a saint indeed!]
