Quick but Lovely

I still do not have a computer just yet. However I could easily cut and paste this poem by Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

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 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.

Quick Check

Well, I know it's been awhile!!  I don't have access to a computer right now and I can't type much from my phone. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will get a new computer and I plan to resume my posts. We have moved out of my in-laws. Big step since we were there since Stella passed. I also started a part time job as an after school teacher. Lots of adjustments. I know it is moving forward but it's been exhausting and challenging for me as we try to establish a new routine. It's hard not to think, "This isn't my life. I want my old, comfortable life back." just trusting there ate great things ahead, just more growing pains. Please keep checking in and thank you for your patience. I have not been doing so well with it - patience that is. Blessings
