My Last Pity Party

WMyLast-PityParty117x175

How did I get stuck doing this?  
I fuss and fume
as I make the calls,
stuff the envelopes,
and line up the name tags.
I am slowly realizing
that just because
I can do something,
doesn't mean
I need to be the one
who says "yes." 

Please help me see
that every job
is not destined to be mine.
Please help me understand
that I can say "no"
without being mean—
even when someone
is surprised
by my answer.

Give me the wisdom
to find a balance
between the many requests
that come my way
and the time and talents
You have given me.
As I find this balance,
help me rediscover
the joy I once felt
in sharing my talents with others.
