I’m feeling crumby. There will be no Mass attendance and ashes on my forehead today. The children and I have been sick with high temperatures, headaches, coughs and colds for the past four days (I missed Sunday Mass too and know that I am very much in need of the Eucharist). I feel quite deprived that I won’t begin Lent as I had hoped, but must accept that first and foremost I am a mother with the responsibilty to care for the children God has blessed me with. Looks like the little sacrifices have begun already then.
As the e-card below states, ‘seek and you will find’. Let’s pray for one another that we will each find what our souls thirst for as we journey through Lent together.
