As a "work at home" Mother - this is something I must repeat to myself on a pretty regular basis. This kind of life and work can take a lot out of you and there are many things that can bring you down. The importance of recognizing the importance in what we are doing is key!
The Serenity Prayer
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.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
