Ash Wednesday has come and gone which means it is now officially Lent! When I was a child I would always give up candy as my sacrifice for Lent. Believe you me, for a child with a sweet tooth this was no easy task. I remember RIPPING into my basket Easter morning, suffering from the effects of sugar withdrawal!
This year I thought I'd try to give up caffeine. When I realized that this was a COMPLETELY unrealistic goal I decided to do something that would benefit someone other than myself. So this year I've decided that for Lent I will give up paying attention to my magazines, TV or the computer when my husband comes home from work and focus my attention on him!
I guess you could say I'm trying to sacrifice the vice of self-absorption.
How about you? What are you giving up for Lent?
