About Me

My photo
Life is an adventure. Sometimes I yearn for boredom, yet it never comes. This is an account of my struggles & triumphs- my struggle to know God & understand the "why" behind it all. "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain" This is just me - learning to dance - sometimes gracefully, but most the time - stepping on my 2 left feet..

Do it Anyway

Okay - so I know I have been silent for a little while now.  Let me give a simple explanation - we are currently in the reunification process and I have been given the legal advice to be very careful with my blog because things can be taken out of context and used against us -- I think you all probably understand.  I am dancing despite the storm -- but silently.

I have run across some words that were found on Mother Teresa's wall in Calcutta that are such an inspiration to me and wanted to share them with you -- she may have written them -- but today they are from my heart to you.

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.

The storm may be raging on in your life.....dance anyway.
Dancing in the storm,
