Unexpected Christmas Gifts

Given the year we’ve had, perhaps we could re-wrap our expectations of Christmas. 

Sometimes Christmas comes with a few unwanted gifts, wrapped with some offensive packaging – I’m sure you know what I mean.

So this year I invite you to look after yourself, your heart and your spirit by reading this special message whenever you feel the need for some extra support, peace, and goodwill.

My gift to you this Christmas is this amazing prayer – by Mother Teresa 

People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today will often be forgotten.

Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.

Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.   

Mother Teresa

Blessings Abound To You This Christmas
