” I’ll give up…. pushing my brother.” “Ok”, I say, “great honey… but we shouldn’t do that to begin with. Why don’t you do one nice thing per day for your little brother AND not push him.”
I much like the children that give up complaining for Lent; that benefits them and me. Two for the price of one. But to be fair, that’s hard. In fact, that is my Lent as well. When the days get overworked and your stretched in many different directions… we don’t sometimes realize how our tone comes across to others or our complaining can tank someones mood.
So… here’s to you having a good Lent with positive Lenten sacrifice.
