"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway."
In addition to this, I finally finished a piece of art that I started working on before Christmas. It was another "healing" piece for me. I am very proud of it and when I read Mother Teresa's words today, this painting instantly came to mind. I think they belong together.
|I am so in love with earth tones right now! Glorious greens, yellows, grays and browns.|
