I am having an extremely tough and frustrating week at work…
and hubby send this to me. (Don’t know where he got it from… but it made me laugh… thanks dear !)
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because they pissed me off. Also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today, as they may be connected to the ass I may have to kiss tomorrow.
Help me to always give 100% at work…12% on Monday, 23% on Tuesday, 40% on Wednesday, 20% on Thursday and 5 % on Fridays. Help me to remember that when I am having a bad day, and it seems that people are trying to piss me off, that it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 4 muscles to extend my middle finger and tell them to bite me.
The Original version is Serenity Prayer by twentieth century American theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr.
- God, Give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, Courage to change the things which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, Taking, as Jesus did, 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, So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
