it's a new day

Whew, rough day yesterday... With the markets activities and the mortgage rates/media response to those activities it has been a ludicrous week. My favorite day of the week to be in the branch is Saturday. And, I am in my favorite branch today! It's a new day!

Our Betta died yesterday so I said a little prayer, disposed of him and will get the tank ready for some new fish... Ian doesn't know and he will be bummed... It was his Betta. He had to have been sick when I bought him. We had him for 6 days, and 6 days is far too short even for me to kill a fish. I am defeinitely not that bad a fish keeper lol.

I love the "daily reprieve" we receive each day. Yesterday was an insane day, suffice it to say. It's been a loooong time since I have been so upset over another person that I could barely function. Today, I feel refreshed, I slept well, I am truly looking forward to going out and getting a lot of work done and kicking butt! I just love that I can reflect at the end of (or in the middle of) a tough day and know that tomorrow is another day and this too shall pass. It gives me strength to know that my God will hit my "reset button" whenever I need Him to, but always while I sleep.

Heavenly Father, I just thank You for a new day today. I thank You for my sobriety, for AA and the miraculous people I have come to know and love. I pray that I might not allow anything to disturb my serenity today. I pray that I might be the one to bring a sense of calm to every situation I encounter today. Please help me help someone today. I have to remember that I am here to do Your bidding, to be of Service to You and those around me.

peace to you all!
