This one never gets old...

"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."

--The Serenity Prayer

I first encountered this prayer in 1969
when I graduated high school. A plaque
with this prayer was given to me by a
neighbor in St. Clairsville, Mrs. Styles, as a
graduation present.

At the time, I thought it was silly because
at 18 I was dead-set on changing the world.
The older I get, the more this small prayer
has come to mean to me.

Dear Mrs. Styles, Thank you from the
bottom of my heart.
