Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it.

Michael J. Fox

The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.

Nathaniel Branden

No intelligent idea can gain general acceptance unless some stupidity is mixed in with it.

Fernando Pessoa

    As I face unexpected, overwhelming news, I just felt like I was in some kind of numb atmosphere. I found it hard at first to concentrate on anything; even reading my Bible and praying as before. Then I surrounded myself with some wonderful gospel music and started praying "Lord, let me feel your arms around me". The very next morning, I awoke with a song of praise and great hope. We may not know about our future, but God does. We also know that the final victory is ours. I hope this encourages you too my precious Christian sister. I am praying for you.
Hugs and prayers

    I'm with you on acceptance if it is properly used and not a cover for giving up.
