Forrest's thoughts....

Hi, remember me....I am Remington's older kitty brother. Forrest Joseph.  Rem said I could post some of my thoughts once in awhile.  So I am ready to do it today.

Today I found something that touched my heart so I thought I would share it with you....

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends
and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

-this version is credited to Mother Teresa

 I hope you enjoyed reading this and thank you for your time....
Forrest Joesph

Forrest Joseph this was an excellent post. I really enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing. Please tell Remington that although I missed him this morning, I do enjoy getting to see and hear from YOU now and then. Plus it gives him some extra time to play with Bob and his other furends.

Hi Forrest! You have beautiful thought to share. I think Remington should let you post regularly. And if he tells you no, that this is his blog - slip in during the night, and DO IT ANYWAY!
