A Good Day=A Beautiful Life

I refuse to sweat the little things.  I try each and every day to live by 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.

I love the original version but can’t remember it like I can the short version.

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.
Amen.

I’m going to participate in two blog parties today, I love blog parties.  I try each week to be part of A Beautiful Life series over at The Inspired Room, but stumbled across It’s Going To Be A Good Day and loved the idea. 

Life can really get you down if you let it.  I don’t hide that I thank God for a counselor that has “retrained” me and the way I think.  No stinkin thinkin for me.  I accept that life isn’t what I would dream it to be, but I make the best out of what it is.

It’s going to be a good day because

  • After a great day at work I will get to sit on the deck and watch The Baby Girl splish splash in her pool.  She will be grinning from ear to ear and that’s all the matters.
  • I am going to The Carter Store today to buy a sweet baby gift and surprising someone with an unexpected present, isn’t that the best feeling?
  • It’s Friday so I will get to spend time experiencing Vitamin D therapy over the weekend.
  • Baby James’ garden is blooming and I love it.  Our move has really changed his garden, but everytime I look out there I’m reminded of the love Mr. Wonderful has for me and how much the fountain and bench meant to me my first Mother’s Day without Baby James.

I think it’s simple the more and more good days we allow ourselves to have the more beautiful our lives are!  Make it a good day!!

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
