The past few years I've been pregnant and/or nursing a small babe. This year Tub of Love is a little older, so I'm making a greater effort to fast and abstain. I'm definitely out of practice. Ash Wednesday was hard! Thursday saw a hearty, healthy breakfast to make up for the lack of calories the day before.

The fast was to good effect though, showing me how attached I am to my creature comforts. There is definitely room to become less attached to worldly things so that I may seek to follow the ways of the Lord. I'm sure to succeed at times and falter at others, but overall it will be a good spiritual workout.

So I say, Bring it Lent. Let's see what you got.
