I can't believe Lent is almost upon us, it seems like Christmas was just yesterday.

I picked up the little black book as well- and am going to make an effort to read it each day- in the past I start out well but have fallen off in the past.

I looked for a little black book at a nearby parish (that has had them in the past), but came up empty.

...we've been adding something beneficial to our lives each Lent as well as giving something up...with the hopes that the addition will stay with us...for example, this year, my 14 year old has given up soda and committed to flossing every night along with brushing
