"Keep that breathless heart"

Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite quotes with you by Mother Theresa. It's so uplifting for this chilly Monday morning! What is your favorite quote that you live your life by?

People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people will accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Have a fabulous Monday!
Yours,
sCe
