“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 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 love that quote. I was singing Martina McBride's song, "Anyway" the other day. I think "anyway" is my new mantra.
