Welcome to 2012!

I've been pondering what to write in this entry for an entire week now!  A recap of last year?  Could sound way too depressing.  A list of New Years "resolutions"?  May be a little too optimistic.  My thoughts on New Years resolutions? lol Too soap-boxy.  So, what if we all lived the following every day for the next year? I wonder what a difference it would make in our lives.

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. 
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. 
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.” 

― Mother Teresa

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
(Mat 6:19-21)
