Do the Right Thing Anyway
Do the Right Thing Anyway
12/13/2017

I was reminded of this quote by Mother Teresa when you were talking to the mom who was upset because her stepdaughter was graduating and the maternal grandma chose to go to a wedding instead. God Bless that mom for holding all 4 of her daughters equally in her heart. I had a sweet step dad who was Victorian and not very demonstrative, but I felt he loved me and my life would have been so awful without him. He gave up a lot to take care of us and I will always be grateful for it. I have been a teacher and child advocate most of my adult life because I needed a champion as a child and he stepped up. - Penny

Here is the quote:

"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. What you spend years creating others 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 best you have, and it may 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."

- Mother Teresa
