  1. I've always loved the Prayer of Serenity and the image you have chosen is perfect! I penned this during my calligraphy days. I'll have to dig it out and share sometime. Have a *beautiful* day and great week ahead :-)

    1. I understand. Would love to see your calligraphy work.
      I got this quote during our 3 day quality control meeting. Actually, it's meant for us participants to change our attitude towards work.

      Thanks for wanting to dig your quotes. It'd be a nice sharing. :)
