Straight? What? 40 days of consistent blogging from a woman you've heard from twice in two months?
Yep. That's me. I need to work on commitment this Lent, and this seems to be a pretty good place to be held accountable. I'm online so you can leave comments of encouragement. If I fail, hopefully you live far enough away that I won't be able to see you shake your head in shame..If you live close, I'll cross my fingers that you won't find my hiding place(s).
My kids and husband ROCK Lent. Completely. There is no respectful way to say it. Each one knows what they want to give up every year and they do it. They do not waver. No soda, no sweets, no fast food. Who are these people? I do not have their strength nor do I have their determination. But what better examples could I follow?
So I will practice daily kindness. I will be aware of what I consume, both food and purchases brought into the home. And I will ramble on to you about who-knows-what for the next forty days.
I can only imagine the starter-projects I'll now have to finish. Or the embarrassing stories I'll have to tell. Come on, you know you want to follow. Leave comments to tell me how impressed you are that I'm still up and walking every day and that my mind is somewhat intact. Learn something, laugh a little and help out a girl who is working on finishing something (anything) she's started. Make no mistake, there will be chocolate, and large amounts of caffeine involved. But thats ok.
Baby steps, people. I guess I'll be seeing you tomorrow :)
