My heart is full after all of the lovely and encouraging messages that i have received after my last post. Thank you so much for taking the time to send them to me. It has meant so much to me.
i found this amazing quote by Blessed Mother Teresa this morning on Pinterest when i got home from church. I felt like She was speaking directly to me. I want to share it with all of you, too.

"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."
- Blessed Mother Teresa
