On A Lighter Note

Stick Your Neck Out and Face the Holidays as an ACOD!!

When parents divorce in our adulthood, holidays change.
Read my post called The Holiday to gain some help and hope for this challenging time of year.
Take out a piece of paper and every time you think of something that is GOOD in your life, write it down. Although adult children of divorce have pain and loss, focusing on our blessings helps keep our perspective in balance.
I am thankful for those who read, comment and email and help me not feel alone in this journey as an ACOD!!!

The Serenity Prayer for Adult Children of Divorce




The Serenity Prayer for Adult Children of Divorce

God grant us adult children of divorce the serenity
to accept that things won't be the same in our families;
courage to change things for the best when we can;
and wisdom to know what is up to us, and what isn't.

Living one day at a time; and handling one situation that arises at a time;
Enjoying good past memories and enjoying each present moment as much as we are able, as we ultimately look to the future.

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Trying to live as He did in this sinful world, accepting it as it is and not as

we wish it were.
Trusting that He will make all things right in our inner spirits and in the last chapter of our story, if we surrender to His Will;
That we may be reasonably content in this life
and supremely whole and in communion with God forever in the next.
Amen.
