God bless her.
(For the record, I ate her portion and mine.)
This year, I decided to take part in Lent for the very first time. Rather than giving up chocolate -- for which I'm not sure I have the strength -- I settled on something that seemed simpler.
I gave up complaining for Lent.
May I be transparent for a moment? Really, truly honest? Prepare yourself:
This is hard. All day long, I'm asking myself, "Does that count as a complaint? Nah. Right? *sigh*"
But I've heard a rumor that thankfulness -- celebration of everyday stuff -- is the key to silencing a complaining mouth/heart/mind.
Tonight, we're going to practice. Here goes nothing!
|#450 - Pink sparkly Royal Princess shoes|
|#451 - Mountain climbing|
|#452 - Excellent parenting|
So I think maybe,
Perhaps I might just make it through these weeks (and this life, eventually?) without complaining. Much.
