How We Should Live…

February 7, 2010

I have always loved these words of wisdom by Mother Theresa.  No matter how many times I read them, I always get something out of them.  I thought today was a good day to share them.

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.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may be cheat you.  Be honest and frank anyway.  What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.  Build anyway.

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.

–   Mother Theresa

Jewelry Lasts Forever

Isn’t this the best?  I found it in a shop in Green Bay and it makes me smile!  For some women it’s jewelry, for some it’s clothes, for others shoes…we all have our weaknesses – that item we can’t seem to control our impulses about.  Even though we have closets/racks/drawers already filled with this must-have item, we simply cannot pass one by once we fall in love…something we do often!

For me it’s jewelry.  Beads.  Earrings.  Bracelets.  Pins.  New.  Antique.  Costume.  Real.  Any and all of them – I love them all.  I couldn’t wear in a lifetime all the jewelry I want to make for myself.  Fortunately I have a business that allows me to create all the jewelry I dream about and send it out into the world to other jewelry lovers like myself.

Fortunately or unfortunately the men in my life don’t stand the test of time…but I still have my jewelry!
