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.

--Reinhold Niebuhr
This is my mantra nowadays. Life seems so unfair. I feel so helpless. But when I feel depression coming, I just count my blessings. What more can I ask for? I have a very loving husband and we're expecting a baby who doesn't deserve to be stressed. Please Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Have a peaceful weekend everyone.

So, what's new?

I feel like I've been gone for almost like an eternity, what with all the comments I received in my last entry....hahahaha.
Well, blame it on PLDT. We couldn't apply for a new dsl connection since the previous family who rented this place left a 5-figure debt for unpaid internet bills. Grrr... So, the only recourse we had was to transfer our previous line to this place, which took more than a month. After we had our PLDT connection, it was very intermittent. So we had to badger the PLDT people to come up with a solution. Plus, the router we previously used became unusable. So we had to return it to the dealer who replaced the unit since it was within the warranty period. Problem was, this happened during the holidays. We had to wait till the first week of January before the dealer could have it fixed by the manufacturer. This took about a week. Sheesh! One problem led to another which would explain why I could only update my blog last week.
Oh, and what a busy week last week was and this week has proven to be. Lots of reports and letters to finish. Hopefully, this will all subside by next week. I can't really over exert myself, what with the pregnancy and all. Oh! By the way, I forgot to tell y'all....we're expecting another baby! I'm just praying hard to the Lord and all the saints and angels in heaven that we have a healthy baby this time. I will definitely tell him/her stories about their Kuya Raphael.
Oh, and it's midnight already. Hubby says I should go to sleep already so that the baby stays healthy. So, I'll be a good soldier and go to sleep now. I just want to say that I really missed blogging and I really missed all of my blog friends. Tata!
