Ash Wednesday

Go Get your ashes everyone!!!  Hope you had a fabulous Fat Tuesday yesterday cuz the season of Lent is upon us now!!
Have you thought about what you are going to do for Lent this year?  We talked to our  PRE class about the GUS and TOM method. Give Up Something and Take On More.  My family has decided to pick a different GUS and TOM for each of the 40 days during Lent.  We have 40 slips of paper in the GUS jar and 40 in the TOM jar and ever night at dinner we will draw a GUS and TOM for the next day.  All 5 of us will do those 2 things for the entire next day - give up tv, give up computer (say it isn't so!), pray a decade of the rosary, tell everyone else in the family one reason shy you love them...  The lists are endless, just give up something that is a sacrifice, an effort for you and take on something good that will help you keep your focus on God and the reason for the season of Lent!!  Share with me some of the things that you and your family do during Lent - it's a long season and there is a lot to share I am certain!!!

I'm giving up complaining about my daughers. . . seriously!!!

And if you had the day I did today answering phones in a Catholic Church, you wouldn't dream of taking on more . . .at least for tonight!
