Things I am thinking about today...
- This snow shovel represents our life in the Midwest when we have snow falling almost daily. We haven't had a really big snowfall since Christmas, but it is the 2 inches that keeps coming and needs to be shoveled, that gets to you the most. You feel like the winter days are on a repeat cycle that won't end. The benefit is that you get some extra exercise most days.
- Lent begins next week, and I need to think about what I will give up. Sometimes, I decide not to actually give up something, but to do more of something - or do something better. I will need to think about it over the next few days, before Ash Wednesday. It is an opportunity to reflect on sacrifice and what is important.
- Not important, but fun nonetheless, is The Bachelor. We were given 2 episodes in 2 nights this week, with a lot of drama. You have to laugh at Tierra and how Sean can't see the red flags everywhere. A girl who can't get along with other girls, is usually trouble. Also, my friends and I had a discussion about spoilers for the final girl. It's funny how some people want to know how it ends and some are horrified at the thought of finding out. I like to find out the spoilers - I enjoy watching when I know. But, I have been known to read the last chapter of a book first too :-)
- I will be going to a funeral later this week for the parent of a friend. My friends and I are at the stage of life where our parents are aging and we have all the worries associated with that. I will be giving my parents a call today and be thankful that they are doing well.
Enjoy your Thursday - more snow in the forecast for us!
