I have chosen a word as a motto for this year. My word is LOVE. Now before I continue, I realize that the word “love” may mean something different to you than it does to me.
The dictionary has several entries; listing noun definitions, as well as verbs, verb phrases, idioms, and on the list goes.
I’m going to keep it simple for tonight and leave you with a quote from Mother Teresa…..
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.
More in-depth details of my own thoughts on love will come at a later time. That being said, sometimes the people you love the most, will hurt you the most….. ALWAYS LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
