Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful Father (Joe Gallese), who has given me the unmeasurable gifts of a strong work ethic and always seeing my glass as half full.
Ever since I encountered these beautiful words by Mother Teresa they have reminded me of him.
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.
Also a very Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful husband, Domenic. I am sure there is no way to ever say Thank You enough for the two most beautiful gifts I have ever received.
