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.
