The Graduate


I am so proud of you Bri and am excited as
you pursue new dreams in life.
Above all else, remember this ~
You are loved.

Here are a few words to remember and
take with you through life. Not my own,
but words I aspire to live by.

"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 true enemies: Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank people will try
to cheat you: Be honest anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could
destroy overnight: Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may
be jealous of you: Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten
by tomorrow: Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may
never be enough: Give your best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway."
~Mother Theresa
