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.
I'm not a religious person per se, but this is a prayer/thought that is important to keep in mind at times like these.
And since there's so much devastation in the world right now, in China and Myanmar and Zimbabwe, here's another that I saw on a bumper sticker: God Bless the Whole World - No Exceptions.
An update on my situation: the first place I put an offer on countered with something way too high and I decided not to pursue it. I had another place I was interested in, and put an offer on that yesterday, but they are concerned about how long it will take my husband to assume our loan, and I don't blame them. It's kind of a black hole right now, and hard to get information from a big corporation. In the meantime, I go to the climbing gym to get some exercise and know almost noone. And I see my husband periodically - I even went out to dinner with him Sat. night - and though it's good, it's also sad in a way. There's much more going on also, and I just want someone, preferably a male, to hold me in his arms and tell me it's all going to be ok, but I don't have that. And so I have to depend on myself. I know I can, but I also feel that evil monster lurking around (depression). Back!!!
