This is a wonderful poem by Mother Teresa that encourages us to persevere even when times are difficult.  This speaks to all of the  patients and staff.  I wanted to share this with all of you, remember… Build anyways…

By Mother Teresa

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 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 might 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 end, it is between you and God;
          it was never between you and them anyway.

  1. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem! Doing things anyway despite adversities is what something many people forget to do. Have I not pursued alcoholism and addiction cure, I would have not found meaning in my life.
