Somethings we can control and others we cannot. I come from an alcoholic mother. When I was a young girl, I use to feel bitter when I read the serenity prayer. I no longer carry around all that hurt and bitterness, and in someways appreciate what my ailing mother was trying to do.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can (and my favorite part), and the wisdom to know the difference.
I'm trying too.
Happy 2012...I'm glad I get to share it with you all. It is going to be amazing!
