Junker's Serentiy Prayer (Buying Edition)



God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change

Like seeing someone else buy something really, really cool
 that I would have really, really loved at a yard sale

Courage to change the things I can

Like buying things I know are re-sale duds over and over again
just because I like them

And the wisdom to know the difference! 

(And help me to remember that it's only stuff,
I won't die if I don't get it,
and there will always be more stuff out there!)


Apologies to Neibuhr

I especially need to take that last line to heart. I am getting better. I'm waaaay behind in my blogging and commenting...sorry it's taken so long! I probably won't back track...only moving ahead!

Love this! Especially about buying the same stuff over and over again even when I know it doesn't sell.
