My father’s memorial service is today. My son is headed there now. I woke up feeling overwhelmed with worry over what might happen there. Then I saw this meme. Trite or not, I REALLY needed this today.
There’s also the Serenity Prayer used in 12 step programs. I’m not in a 12 step program, but this little prayer fits all kinds of situations. I think I’ll be saying this a lot today.
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.
