Mother Teresa’s Anyway Poem…..

People are often unreasonable, illogical, centered; Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people will 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 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 your God; It was never between you and them anyway.


My brother shared this poem with us all on Christmas Day. I LOVED it and wanted to share it with all of you. Stay well and happy.
