People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Regan noticed the pile of food storage I have been collecting recently and asked why I'm doing that.  I talked to her about emergencies and the things we have to plan for.  I told her about the story in the Book of Mormon where Lehi was told in a dream that Jerusalem was going to be destroyed that he needed to take his family and leave.  I said that it could happen today.

Mom: What would you think if the prophet asked us to leave and only take a the essentials with us and never come back?
Regan: I would feel sad.  This is our home and I wouldn't want to leave all of our stuff.
Mom: But if the prophet asked you to, would you?
Regan: (With a solemn face) Yes, and I'd do it with a happy heart.  :)

Where did she come up with that?  I love that she has such a simple, yet strong testimony of the gospel, and the prophet.  Made my heart want to burst.
