Lenten Musings

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Lent has snuck up on me this year. It came too early and I wasn't quite prepared. So here I am Ash Wednesday morning deciding what to do for Lent this year. As a youngster, I was one to "give up" something during Lent. As I got older, I decided to use the time to do something positive, to improve on myself somehow. So...what am I going to do this year?

I have decided to spend more time with my aging mother. I can see where she is in need of more help. Things are just harder for her to do lately. I will also spend more time touching base with the rest of my family. They do mean a lot to me.

On a good note, as of yesterday, I am a great-great-aunt. My oldest great-niece had a little boy named Vincent. Unfortunately, she lives in Missouri, so I don't know when and if I will get to see him.

    Oh how wonderful a new baby in the family! I'm so happy for you and the new little blessing in your life. Time to use video chat. You can both get free skype accounts and video chat or if you both have iPhones you can 'FaceTime" all you want! I use the iPhone to video chat with my cousins in Germany.

    Have a great weekend!
