Ahh yes, winter is here! There are small puddles on my floor from the just-enough-to-make-a-mess snow outside. My dogs are inside constantly causing a mess and driving the kids crazy… or maybe that is the other way around. My oldest is out of school until after the first of the year which basically means more yelling around my house on a daily basis as she causes disruption of our normal routine. My life now consists of cleaning messes and stopping fights. To make matters worse, it is too cold to even get out and do something!
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 at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
