Lent 2014

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. This is Samantha’s first experience with Lent, and she has learned a lot about it in her RCIA classes. Initially she asked to give up reading because she loves reading more than anything else. I was quick to say that God, Mary, Jesus (and her teachers) would not want her to give up reading for 40 days. Her next choice – TV.


This is a big sacrifice for the girl who used to wake up in the middle of the night to watch TV when we established the rule of only TV on the weekends. I have no doubt at all that she will be able to do this….she is a special little lady 🙂
