It’s Ash Wednesday.
That took me by surprise. I only found out about it yesterday. Needless to say, I’m really unprepared. I haven’t had the time to think about what I’m going to give up for Lent.
We’re totally unprepared for no-meat Fridays and no-meat today! It’s a good thing that I have some meatless frozen lunches for work today!
No use dwelling over my unpreparedness for this Lenten season. I might as well dive in. I usually like to be more reflective during Lent. Before Lent, I like to think about ways that I can grow in my spirituality during this season. It’s a great time to reflect. I have to figure this all out sooner than later, but I know that I can do it.
I have no idea how this snuck up on me. I even asked Hubby this weekend, “When’s Easter this year?”
Hubby, who was probably as oblivious about it all as I was, said, “I think it’s coming late this year…”
I guess it would have helped if we went to Mass this past weekend, but with M sick, I didn’t want to risk her getting worse by getting her outside on a rainy Sunday.
Don’t get me started on finding out about Daylight Savings time either… oh boy was I surprised about it being this weekend!
How did I become so oblivious to the usual matters of the year?!?!
