This quote is attibuted to Mother Teresa. I think it's beautiful. I actually have it framed on my desk at home.
I often have to remind myself that God is the only "person" I have to concern myself with pleasing. It is what we were put here for.
I have to work with a relationship with Him, just like my relationships with other people. I "owe" Him more than than I owe anyone. I need to pray more, read His word more, and to trust in Him more.

"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

And I love those handwarmers! Is it a pattern you are willing to share? I downloaded a different pattern, but I like the simplicity of yours far better.
