It’s Fat Tuesday!

As Catholics prepare for the most holy time of the year, I hope if that’s you that you’ll consider this on the eve of your Lenten journey.

Most give up something, a sacrifice for 40 days. But it is often more difficult to commit to something, adding a positive or constructive habit for that specific length of time, than it is to give up.

So rather than cutting out sweets or taking a hiatus from social media, may you do some good this season. Donate one dollar each day, if you’re able, to a worthy cause. Add a new and positive habit to your routine. Practice a random act of kindness daily.

Sacrifice doesn’t always equal giving up – it just may mean making a commitment and sticking to it. Food for thought this evening.
