Mother Theresa and the Gardenia

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 true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may 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.~Mother Teresa~
This gardenia plant has been blooming every time I go the the Belle Isle Conservatory for over 30 years.  What a miracle it is.  Can you smell it?  It blooms for me.
