Thanksgiving Thoughts from Good Stuff!

Before you gather with friends and family, remember Mother Teresa's words "Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart . . . " ... and give what you give with your heart, for we are all in the Home for the Dying.
Pause for a moment ... and then go forward in love.
From Mother Teresa:
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self- centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of having 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, others may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do it anywyay.
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.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
