Years ago (wow, I can say that. . .I must be getting old!) when The General was in Catholic School, the principal had this saying on the bottom of a parent newsletter. I read it, and promptly cut it out and placed it on my refrigerator. It has had a prominent home there ever since. It needed to be placed in a spot that I easily see, and so can remind myself of how I SHOULD behave.
Why were they saints?
Because they were cheerful when it was difficult to be cheerful;
Patient when it was difficult to be patient;
Because they pushed on when they wanted to stand still;
Kept silent when they wanted to talk;
And were agreeable when they wanted to be disagreeable.
That was all.
It was quite simple and always will be.
So this is my hope, to live up to these wise words. I'm telling you, it isn't easy. . .especially the keeping silent part! ;)
Do you have a saying, a special verse, or words of wisdom that are motivating? If so, please share, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would benefit.
