Positive Thoughts To End 2008 With And To Begin 2009.......

I found this on Vintage Lace And Lavender's blog and it sent such a message that I am adding it to mine. Times are not easy and people seem to be a tad ruder with the stresses of today. If we can all remember to be true to ones self and remain kind and gentle in todays world, maybe, just maybe, that will send a message in itself.


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 enemies;
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 the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, It is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.

They are some beautiful thoughts. I will have to remember them. I like your blog...I can't remember how I found it. Come visit me sometimes at a southern rose. We seem to have a lot in common. I think the best sound is having children in the house also. My kids are growing up so fast. Your blog is very pretty.
