Thanks for checking my blog! I apologize for not posting on Friday. There was just not one extra minute in the day. I kept thinking that maybe I would get it posted before midnight, so it would still technically be Friday. Then I thought maybe I would get to it on Saturday. As life would have it, the weekend held few extra minutes either and the ones that I did have needed to be spent with family. One daughter had been out of town the whole week, Father's Day needs to be celebrated and I will be out of town this week for our upcoming Angel Company Annual Seminar.
What I want to share with you today is not original. In fact, it was written by Mother Teresa. It just spoke to me. I don't know about you, but I have those times when much of what I do seems to come up short (usually of my own expectations but sometimes of those of others too). Martina McBride has a song called "Anyway" that I referenced in another blog quite a while ago. This may remind you of that. I hope you find a bit of encouragment or a morsel of inspiration in these words.
"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish 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, others 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 have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway."
Be encouraged and don't grow weary in doing good! Have a wonderful week!
