40 days is a long time. Especially when you give up something you really like.
Maddi asked me the other day, "Mom, can we give up anything we want?"
"Yep," I said, happy to give my child a boost of autonomy.
"Okay," she replied, "I'll give up peanut butter and school!"
I raised my eyebrows and she gave me her famous Maddi giggle, knowing she was being funny.
Let me encourage you today on your walk whether it be for Lent or simply getting through the day. Have a little fun with yourself. Give up something that is a challenge, something that will make you stronger. Give up something you don't like, rid yourself from that negative in your life (unless it is school, I'm sorry you must keep going….Madelynn!)
