Here comes the sun (and a prayer for the stressed)

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
--George Harrison

Just got back from a quick trip to Cambridge and Lexington, MA, where we visited with family and friends (and had a lovely time). It was a gorgeous "Sun day," and I loved how the sun made everything glisten. (FYI, all the photos are mine.)

Spring has definitely sprung. And I feel much happier -- and sunnier -- now that it has.

And if these beautiful pictures are not enough to put you in a good mood, perhaps this short prayer (which we heard on Car Talk) will.

Prayer for the Stressed

Grant me the serenity to accept the things
I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I cannot accept,
and the wisdom
to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill
today because they pissed me off.
Also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today,
as they may be connected to the ass that I have to kiss tomorrow.
Help me always to give 100% at work:
12% on Monday, 23% on Tuesday, 40% on Wednesday,
20% on Thursday, and 5% on Friday.
Also, help me to remember:
when I'm having a really bad day, and it seems that people
are TRYING to piss me off,
that it takes 42 muscles to frown
and only 4 to extend my middle finger
and tell them to bite me.

I'm relieved that I have to give only 12% today!

@David T.: But you will have to give nearly twice as much today!
