Not because anything has physically changed, necessarily.  But because I have decided to embrace my situation, as it is, and stop harping on the stressful things I can't do anything about.  This change in me stemmed from a note that was left for me yesterday morning.  I have no idea who left it or why.  But I've decided to believe that someone is trying to lift my spirits. And is telling me it's time to let this emotional funk go.  The note was short, sweet and directly to the point.  And it spoke volumes to what I've been feeling lately.  And it also is a prayer that my dad has carried with him as long as I can remember.  It has meant allot to me, then and now.  Even though I may forget about it sometimes.  Now I'd like to share it with you.  I hope it can touch your heart as it has touched mine.


God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
The Courage to change the things I can.
And the Wisdom to know the difference.

That prayer has carried me through the thick forest several times.
Keep you chin up.

I so admire your spirit my dear. Funny how we forget these things. That's definitely a good prayer to remember.
