Don’t know why but I’ve been crying all day. I don’t want to work, I don’t want to go out, I don’t want to be cheered up… I just want my Mom.
But I have to work anyway. Luckily I don’t have to see any clients today, so I can cry. And I do, all day. As I’m working I go to my notes in Entourage to look for something and there I see a note titled “Anyway… from Mom.” Below is the email she wrote on August 5, 2006 and below that is the poem she sent. It’s sooo Mom. It doesn’t have anything to do with why I’m so sad today, but it makes me feel good anyway.
Dear Kiddles -I NEVER forward e-mails that are sent me. I tell friends,”Please don’t ask me to forward messages to 5 (6?10?) deserving people. I DON”T forward.” But – I just had to share this one with all of you. The photos are sweet but it’s the words that – well, see what you think.
Love ya -The Mama
P. S. Dad says I say “Anyway” all the time.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Success anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish and having ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
What you spend years building, some may try to destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If your honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you have anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it’s between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
