Today is Ash Wednesday. I only know this because I keep stumbling across blogs about it. Lent wasn't a part of my faith tradition growing up, but I've learned some interesting things about it in recent years.
Did you know watching the Olympics can be dangerous? I mean really, one minute I'm enjoying a perfectly innocent Bobsled race and the next minute? I'm crying. Not like, "my eyes are watering" kind of crying. More like the ugly cry. Wham! Didn't see that coming.
I grabbed a handful of chocolate chips and curled up in my favorite chair with a blanket. The Olympics are good company on a Friday night at the end of a long week, when you feel a bit like a zombie.
