Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Something I really needed to read today!

I've been struggling with a couple of things lately. I read this today and it was just what I needed.

People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 false friends and
Some true friends; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
Someone could destroy overnight, build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world your best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.


  1. Yep. Great reminders to do all to the glory of God, to please Him, and not just to have people notice.

  2. Barb, this is a great reminder. Thanks for posting.

  3. Great reminder. Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing. People of character do things because they are the right thing to do....even in the midst of being alone or misused.

  5. What a great reminder... it's certainly a good way to go through life. I think it describes you perfectly. :)

  6. A good reminder to be true to oneself and not be unduly worried about what others think.

  7. As a middle child who thrives on being accepted, I find this so hard to do. The older I get the easier I find it. Thanks for the thought.
