The Serenity Prayer

I definitely needed this one tonight. I have been tearing my house apart trying to locate the information for my specialist appointment next week. I even started panicking that maybe I had somehow missed the appointment. Thankfully I found it and I am greatly relieved to have confirmation that my appointment is on Tuesday of next week and I haven't missed it.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity 
to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; 
Enjoying one moment at a time; 
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it; 
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life 
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

--Reinhold Niebuhr
