Thanks for your supportive comments to my post yesterday. I must remind myself that nothing good comes out of comparisons. I try to never compare my kids - because they all have different talents and are blessed in their own way. I shouldn't compare myself with others, because ultimately I'm pretty happy with who I am in the version that I presently am, though I hope to improve in ways that really matter.
I read this, liked it, and thought I'd share it:
This was posted in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta:
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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
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 best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
For my non-Christian friends, please modify the last verse to suit your beliefs.
I promise my next post will be monetarily-related.
Running with the Savers!
