Today’s Quote

The Serenity Prayer
(adapted)

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~

  1. My mother taught me this quote when I was a little girl. I had a necklace with a mustard seed and this quote was on the back. I’ve quoted these words to myself often through the years.

  2. I needed to see this today…We lost our dog yesterday and had to put her down since she had a half pound tumor behind her heart. which started bleeding this past week. It was sudden and she went fast, this prayer helps today…she was our sweetheart:-)…….been a crazy summer, but I plan on stopping by here more often since you lift my spritis + get me to “process” this world a bit better….you are a blessing, Theresa…thank you for all your hard work on your posts:-)

    • Dearest Robbie – I am so very sorry about your dog; they are our children, and our grief no less than when we lose a beloved person. My heart goes out to you and I send blessings of comfort to you at this time…

      • thank you Theresa….you are so right, they are like children, my youngest moved out last year, so we are empty nesters now. We have two other dogs, but this one was so unexpected and wow, had no idea we would cry so much over an animal, but we did + they are family….,seeing this prayer today, gave me comfort + also reading “the rainbow bridge” last night …she will be waiting for us….
