It's Monday and it's time for...Borrowed Words


Today I decided to give you something that is very dear to me and every time I read these words I get reminded of how often random acts of kindness do go unnoticed but how often these are also the only things that matter. If there is anything that can pull me out of an emotional or spiritual slump it is the words borrowed from Mother Theresa:


"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."
