What to give up for Lent

During Ash Wednesday mass, the priest asked who was giving up what for Lent. It was the Children's mass. Little K proudly waved her hand in hopes of being called on. Luckily, the priest did not call on her.

Instead, I asked Little K what she was going to give up for Lent.

"Wine," Little K said.

Super, I thought, super.

Until the next nap time...

Pulling together as a Family

My blog posts have been few & far between of late due to our heavy & busy schedules. My knee surgery was completed in late January but I'm still on two crutches for another 2 weeks. That's a total of 6 weeks after which I graduate to 1 crutch for who knows how long.

My poor father-in-law continues his protest & strong fight against cancer. It's interesting although somewhat painful to talk through all this with a young child. The other night at bed time, Little K & I were praying.

I said: "we should ask God to miraculously heal Popi or ... "

Silence. What should I say?

Little K replied: "or he could go to Heaven & not hurt any more."

"Yes, you're right, baby," I said.

"But I'll miss Popi when he goes to Heaven," Little K said.

"Yes, baby, I will, too. We all will."

So we continue as a family, the way it should be. Keep the prayers coming.

Until the next nap time...
