What is the foundation of your home built on?
Peace. Love. Trust. Forgiveness. Strife. Manipulation. Words. Negativity.
Our homes are built on all sort of foundations.
Some are strong, firm and reliable, others are shaky, ruptured and unsafe.
My husband and I were talking about this amazing statement written by Mother Teresa today…
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;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will
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..
The thing is we cannot all be mother Teresa, there was only one of her, she lived her life and time the best she could.
There is only one of you. The foundation that you build your home on, has the capacity to affect absolutely millions, because of the people you affect in your home.
No one talks about Mother Teresa’s dad, but maybe he was the one who made the most amazing foundation in his home, to grow and develop his daughter to believe in helping others.
Therefore her dad impacted millions.
You never know who your nearest and dearest will impact.
All you have today is the potential to build a foundation of love, forgiveness and peace.
Happy fathers day everyone.
