I'm not really on E2 much. Too many responsibilities at the moment. Maybe I'll come back when it starts to get cold around here, we'll see. Sorry caknuck, if I've let you down as a mentee. Family first, right?
It's Between You and God by Mother Teresa
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 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 was never between you and them anyway.

Myrkabah: FireBanshee: You are *SO* going to hell. (Sinner.)
