Serenity Now!

I gave myself a chuckle when I thought, “The Serenity Prayer teaches me that snow shoveling exists firmly within the realm of ‘changing the things I can,’ but I just don’t wanna.”

I actually enjoy snow shoveling, or as I might call it, snow pushing. I have a shovel that allows me to just scoot snow into piles on either side. I just didn’t want to get bundled to go outside. It was a day off from work, and I was cozy.

Nevertheless, I got outside to do it. I was about halfway finished when this wonderful Mystery Neighbor approached my driveway with a snow blower. He was clearing all the sidewalks and all the driveways (what a gift!) And he finished the second half of my driveway. The whole thing took about 10 minutes.

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and a snow blowing Mystery Neighbor.”

Yeah, that’s it.
