From Mother Teresa (1910-1997) Catholic nun and missionary to Calcutta.
“People are often unreasonable and self centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
I 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.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give you best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
Ran across this and loved it, thought you might too. Reminds me that I walk with God in who I am and what I do day by day. Thankful.
