As we strive to live a life of acceptance of all that is, has been, will be and will not be, my wish for you in 2014 is . . .
That you will have the serenity to accept the things you cannot change; the courage to change the things you can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
That you will live one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking this world as it is, not as you would have it;
trusting that you may be reasonably happy in this life.
