God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Taking one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a path to peace.
Taking, as Jesus did, this cruel world as it is, not as I would have it.
Knowing that you will make all things right if I just surrender to your will.
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with you in the next.
- Reinhold Niebuhr
They say that grief has five stages, and the last is acceptance…
Kesner lived, Kesner loved me, and Kesner died. I cannot change this, nor would I want to change our love story. I accept those things I cannot change. I surrender.
