Grant Loved One the serenity to stop beating Loved One up for not doing things perfectly;
the courage for them to forgive Loved One because Loved One is working on loving more;
and the wisdom to know that You already love them just the way Loved One is.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as the pathway to their inner peace.
Taking, as You did, this sinful world as it is, not as Loved One believes it should be.
Trusting that You will make all things right if Loved One surrenders to Your will;
That they may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
