Day 42. Love In Working Clothes

Sometimes it's hard to love people--especially when they are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.

But a familiar saying, apparently engraved on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, reminds me to love people anyway... because that's what Love does. A vibrant picture of what Love looks like in working clothes.

"People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable.
Be honest and transparent anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People who really want help may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt.
Give the world your best anyway.

May your day be filled with much love!
