[color=maroon]We suddenly had a death at our senior citizen community of a young man who cared for his mother. I felt like I was running on adrenaline all day just wanting to be there for the mother and doing whatever I could. By the end of the day I suddenly just cried and cried and felt like a truck hit me. I can still feel. I can still love. I can still cry with others. I'm not numb anymore. Hallelluia!
I found that the "Serenity Prayer" is longer than the standard four lines you may be familiar with
and just wanted to pass them along for those who may be interested.
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.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonable happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
