Chapter 8, Page 9, Book 19

Do what you feel in your heart to be right -- for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be 'damned if your do and damned if you don’t'.

Eleanor Roosevelt

August 9’th - do what must be done

When one must, one can.

Charlotte Whtton

It is amazingg what we can do when we have to. There are many things I’d never thought about doing before I was a wife and a mom. Because of love we do many things that we didn’t know we were even able to do.

We do what ever it takes to care for those we love and want to make them happy. I know I worked a job that I didn’t particularly like for many years because I had a family to take care of. 

I came to appreciate the fact that I had a job where I made enough to support my family and even though It wasn’t something I loved to do, I learned to like what I was doing. And that made a lot of difference. 

The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over a situation. But you have a choice about how to view it.

So true that we do what we have to do. Often in love but sometimes out of necessity!

I think love calls for us to do things we don't want to do. Sometimes we don't get a thank you or even recognized. God knows.

YES we overcome so many things, and it surprises even the individual. it also produces a feeling of self worth when we persevere.
This is good.
Enjoyed the visit.
