Thank God for my friends

I am grateful for all those who think of me as their friend, and especially of those pure of hearts that I can fall back on in time of need. And this is one of those times!

So for your benefit with no further delay, here are a few insightful post from two of my very special angels.

Welcome to my blog
- the place through which I hope to share my thoughts, opinions and different perspectives of life.

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 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 ...

You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God ;
It was never between you and them anyway ...

written by Mother Teresa(1910-1997)

Bai Maleiha B. Candao
Cotabato City, Central Mindanao, Philippines

Bai Maleiha is a focused writer who espouses justice, peace and interfaith unity in the midst of the decaying moral and cultural fibers of many people owing to political vindictiveness, power struggle and hypocritical pro-poor concerns masking vested interest and self- promotion.

She used to edit and publish her own community paper,"The New Mindanao Kris", from 1997 to 2001. At the height of the 2000 Mindanao war, she allied with her fellow journalists to call for peace.
Do unto others
Originally uploaded by Princess Activist

Do unto others
goodness of an act
Offer the flowers
in your garden
Let sweet thoughts be haven
For lost and lonely souls

Do wear before others
the crown in your smile
Let fragile souls
be touched with serenity
Calmness and sincerity
a permanent tranquility..

The Golden rule,
must be embed
Value your words
Be good
Do unto others
What you want
Done unto you..

Great minds of governments
Great poets of humanity
Great parents of the world
Rule with such golden words..

It is a rule
By God and just men
For goodness must win
At all cost
At all times

Do unto others
The best deeds
The best acts
Do unto others
sweetness beyond life
Extend kindness
Forever be just
Do unto others
The gift of love
For God is love
Of thy golden life...

People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Take no one for granted and embrace all equally with joy!
