God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day a t a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking 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;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with you forever in the next

it has been a rough few days. it was the anniversary of Jesse's passing. then it was the closure of a friendship gone wrong. knot only did I lose a friend, but I lost my little hiking buddy as well. the trial and tribulations of relationships wears on me. time is healing my wounds. I know I will get thru it all. Life is about change but sometimes the change is painful and knot desired. I can only hope for better tomorrows in relationships. Lessons are learned. growth is expanded. it's all part of the journey....and today is another beginning.
