Also on another note, I have liked Martina McBride since the early 90s when I was at a concert where she opened for Garth Brooks. (Yes, I was a BIG time country music fan!) And yesterday I heard her song "Anyway" for the first time. I liked it so much I thought I would share the video from YouTube here! It reminds me of a quote/poem I heard once by Mother Teresa - this was written on the wall in her children's home in Calcutta and this specific version is credited to her:
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.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
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.
Hope you all have a super great Mother's Day! May God richly bless you!
