This prayer is recited by millions of us on a daily basis and it certainly started me on my road to recovery, substitute any entity for the word, God....

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change... change the things I can...and... know the difference."

A friend of Bill, who has found a new spiritual life

I survive, one day at a time...knowing that I now can accept the things that cannot be changed, change the things I can and find the wisdom to know the difference.
