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.
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!!
