I have been a little lazy these past two weeks with my Monday Inspirations. I have been SWAMPED lately (as many moms are) mostly due to my own goals and projects. Most of them will be posted here soon. I have been at my parents' for just shy of a week and have looked repeatedly at this plaque that my mom has displayed since I was young. I'm guessing that I have read it somewhere between a hundred and a thousand times. I thought that this would be a good saying to share today.
"Let Me Do My Best Today"
LET ME DO MY BEST TODAY,
NOT FOR WHAT MY FRIENDS MAY SAY,
NOT FOR GLORY, NOT FOR FAME,
NOT FOR ALL TO KNOW MY NAME,
NOT FOR SHOW AND NOT FOR THANKS,
NOT TO RISE ABOVE THE RANKS,
NOT TO HEAR THE CROWDS APPLAUD,
JUST LET ME DO MY BEST... FOR GOD.
Like I said before, I have read this many times as I was growing up in my parents' home. When I read this now, I realize how much more true it is for parents. Let me do my best today, I can be guaranteed that I will not gain any glory, fame, any sort of acknowledgement and definately not any thanks. What I do today matters though, alot, because what I do today will affect my children, myself and my entire family as a whole. So, let me do my best today!
Have a great week!
