My family and I are leaving for the airport in about 20 minutes. We’re going to spend the week at Disneyland.
My daughters are 3 1/2 and 4 11/12. I’m sure this trip is going to be great, but I am stressed out about it.
We don’t have the money to be doing this. How are we going to manage 7 days away from home? Is our neighbor going to take good care of our cat while we’re gone? What if my wife or I have a breakdown on the trip? What if the kids hate it?
These are stupid things to worry about, I know. Well, maybe not the money which is my biggest worry.
Anyway. Pause. Pause. Pause for a moment of reflection.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.
Disneyland! We’re going to Disneyland. That’s a good thing. That’s a great thing. That’s a blessed thing.
