Be thankful

I am reminded today that we should cherish people who have helped us be who we are.  I am believer that I didn't get to where I am because of myself alone.  There are many people along the way in my life that have helped and assisted me when needed.  There have been people that have helped when I didn't want help.  We need to thank those that have been supportive of us and remember that it isn't us alone that make us who we are.  It is the people, and experiences along the way that make us who we are.  Be thankful.  

This is such a great message from 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."
