Serenity Now!

You've probably heard this prayer before, especially if you've attended or know someone in AA:

It's a good one, applicable to anyone, whether they are struggling with an addiction or not. 

But today I need a different prayer. Something along the lines of:


Grant me the willpower to 

not adopt every homeless cat in Ohio, 

Abandoned by my students' neighbor!

The strength to still my heart
when I pass a poster advertising 'Free kittens', 

Survived a coyote attack (mostly intact)!

And the faith to understand that 
loving the two cats we already have is enough!

(I still might bring that white one home.... That face!)


  1. Sheesh! The grey kittens look like Toby. I want them all.
