Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, a very special time of reflection, sacrifice and preparation for Easter...
We took the girls to church today for our Ash Wednesday mass, where ashes for being distributed for all parishioners...
This is the first time we took Gaby to this mass and she was so excited... I got all teary eyed when she asked her daddy to request that she'd be given some ashes too.. and then she was so proud showing everyone her little ash cross on her forehead...
Obviously she doesn't really get the concept of what Ash Wednesday means, but I feel like this is the beginning of her faith and all of the traditions that I valued so much when I was a kid (and still do as an adult)... I can only hope to teach my kids the importance of faith and God...
Today was awesome....
For lent I will give up:
- Diet Coke
- Negative attitudes
- Late mornings
I will also:
- Be a better mother and wife
- Focus on my relationship with God.

Happy Lent everyone!
