Most Catholics will fast or give up some luxury during the forty days of Lent. My RCIA class chose a variation during the Lent prior to our confirmation. Instead of giving something up, we chose a daily commitment, in hopes of self-improvement (I wish I could remember what I had chosen). I think I will try this again. I commit to appreciating my family. And, to get me back into the blogging world, I'm going to commit to posting my appreciations.
