feisty faith : channeling mother theresa

I’m afraid I have come up empty this morning. Nothing is wrong….but the mornings are too dark even for an early riser. A friend passed away after a complicated life.  I am wondering where I will muster up my next hit of inspiration. And then along comes Mother Theresa, with this:

by Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered; 
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior 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 sincere, people may cheat you; 
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, someone could destroy overnight; 
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous; 
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten; 
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it will never be enough; 
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
