It's been pretty darned heavy around here lately. Monday we talked about our sick dad who is in the nursing home. Tuesday we had a fabulous discussion about The Mommy Wars and how women heap all kinds of guilt on each other. Wednesday we shared with you about how our family grew up in a cult (Oh yes ma'am. A gen-u-ine documented cult!).
Then I went to Mass and got my forehead ashed so I could contemplate the sacrifice Jesus made for us by being painfully tortured and nailed to the cross.
Instead of curling up in a ball and not getting out of bed or moping all day long, I decided to have some fun today. (And believe you me. When I saw the bags under my eyes and awful crows feet and nasty brows in this picture, I wanted to cry hard and then go shopping for a veil or two.)
While I was going through some post-partum depression awfulness, my friend Leigh played this skit for me. We were sitting in the conference room at work preparing for a sales meeting. I was secretly listening to it on her ipod as people began gathering in the room and the meeting started.
But then, I was caught. Because, ya'll there is not one delicate thing about me. I snorted. Loudly. People stared at me while I tried to casually turn the thing off and remove it from my ears. But it was worth the humiliation I suffered. It's just that funny. So watch this and enjoy your day.
Every day during Lent, I will be sharing the daily devotion that I created for my family to do during dinner. (Because let's face it, I'm not giving up my Diet Coke or chocolate, so I should be offering up something). I made our Lent Devotional appropriate for children my son's age (5) so that he would be able to relate to the topics we discuss each evening. Here is the devotion we did last night, followed by some chocolatey-good browning baking.
GOD GAVE YOU A POWERFUL SPIRIT
2 Tim. 1:7 "For God did not give us a spirit of fear.
