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.

St.  Francis

Most of us can probably quote this... it's living it that's the problem!


  1. Being better managers of our money is one thing we can change, and reading your blog certainly inspires me to do that. Two of my latest "frugal living" successes are highlighted on my blog post for today at I hope you'll have a chance to take a peek. How's your mom doing?

  2. This is a prayer that I repeat several times a day. Some days it's the only way to get through it serenely.
