"People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable.
Be honest and transparent anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People who really want help may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt.
Give the world your best anyway."

- Mother Teresa

A Really Big Controversy...

Carolyn says...

It comes in many forms.

For some, it’s a slight raise of the eyebrows accompanied by a quietly tolerant (yet mildly amused) expression of acceptance of the oddities of their fellow man.

For others, it’s a politely disbelieving expression followed by a hasty exit.

Some people almost believe it’s a good idea. Just like they almost believe you if you proclaimed that the mother ship just landed in the parking lot and the mother alien is requesting help picking up stitches.

Yep, my friends, it comes in many forms.  But, perhaps the most often seen response is “Who in their right mind would want to knit socks?”

And, perhaps if you had never done it before, you would be skeptical too. It is even possible that you used to be an eyebrow raising non-sock knitter yourself. It is even more possible that you are still an eyebrow raising non-sock knitter.

Sock knitting. Who would have thought that sock knitting was so controversial?
