“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 friends and 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, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
“The good you do today, people will 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, the final analysis is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway."
- Mother Teresa
We have always wanted to serve a mission together, but it is not easy to leave family and friends and a comfortable home in order to serve. We will miss our kids and grandkids very much. We choose to serve anyway.
We’ve had good examples to follow. Our ancestors left a rich heritage of sacrifice and service. We have been blessed by their lives and examples. Now is our time to give. We don’t know whose lives we may affect or who may affect ours, but we will go forward and serve, anyway. ~Don~
