Kindness when you are down

Everyday is a new and interesting challenge. When you start your day you want to be the best you can be. But sometimes that’s tough when you are not starting your day off the right way, in prayer!

Hard to be a kind person when you are down and not in the mood to be cheery. So you must think of the other person and smile though you are not having the best of days. I know, that’s a stretch, you can do it and sometimes that person is kind and brings you out of the down mood.  So be open to giving kindness… and receiving it!  Just ask God for guidance, I did today, this morning the mood I was in was not my best but as I kept asking God to help me get through it, it was easier as the day went on.

The Serenity Prayer is amazing:

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.
