Lent - My favorite time of year!
No! Seriously! I mean it!
New Year's. Smoo-Years. Give me Lent any time!
Okay, so maybe it isn't all fun and games. Maybe my relationship with Lent is a little bit of a love/hate relationship. I love giving things up for Lent. I love committing to a sacred bond. And then you know... the week's pass.
Dear God they pass. And pass and pass.
Exactly how long is 6 freaking weeks anyway? How can 42 days stretch out into an eternity? #HOW
But for all my moaning and complaining, Lent sets me up right for the rest of the year.
A little discipline in a life otherwise filled with indulgence.
Um, how many more days of this do I have to go through????? LOL
So if you happen to sit down to a meal with my favorite foods (you know 'em... lasagna, lemon merange pie, Twix) think of me and pray this 6 weeks flies by! :-) :-) :-)
