I found the text below here.


Some sources say that the words below were written on the wall in Mother Teresa’s own room.  In any case, their association with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity has made them popular worldwide, expressing as they do, the spirit in which they lived their lives. 

They seem to be based on a composition originally by Kent Keith.



              People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

           If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

            What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

            If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

            The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

         Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

         In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

Yes. Love, G

I’m off to vacay with the family tomorrow. Since I work at home, I call our vacays “business trips.”  Still, for two weeks I am going to soak the four of them in and LEAVE THE COMPUTER AT HOME.

I will miss you, but I promise to think and do many hilarious and ridiculous things and report them to you just as soon as I get back.

We shall make it through this summer together. Remember: everything in moderation; including family time.


Also, this just happened:


Tish: Oh my gosh mom, listen to this. This is amazing.

Tish:  Mom, are you listening??

Me: Yes. Yes. Yes.

Tish: Mom: I was BORN on my birthday. THE SAME DAY. How WEIRD is that??


Perhaps an athletic scholarship for that one?


Love, Miss already, LYLAS.



P.S. I’ll leave comments open in case anyone needs to talk while I’m gone.
