Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
I recently found this reflection in an e-card, and I loved it so much I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
-LandOLakesJesuit

"People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 friendsand 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, there may be jealousy;
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've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway. "
- Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (a.k.a. Mother Teresa)
