This Proves You Can Choose Joy in Any Moment | #GrottoFavorites

Check out Grotto's roundup of the best Catholic social media posts for the week of August 6.
This week’s roundup is all about the joy of simple moments. Whether it’s appreciating the help of friends or learning to laugh at anything, life is better when you can be joyful and share that joy with others.

There is no such thing as something too silly or simple to be grateful for:

The version found written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta: 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 All that matters 👆
