Lenten Update ~ Today I really struggled after having a few super great days. I had committed to something that I just didn’t want to do and I also was irritated that one of my random acts of kindness, which took substantial time and some expense, was not acknowledged to me let alone did I get a personal thank you. I was feeling hard done by and pretty crummy until I really thought about what Lent means to me and that I cannot give of myself for praise or even thanks; if I am truly going to give during Lent in the spirit of the season of sacrifice, I should do so from a pure heart that requires no acknowledgement. I have so many blessings in my life and my hours today of self indulgence are over My random acts of kindness today brought smiles to 3 little people’s faces when I gave them each a cute beanie kid hat.
We need to go green today for St Patrick’s Day and, since I have no idea how to make green eggs and ham and do not dig on swine, I’ve made you some delicious slow cooker Broccoli Chicken over wild rice. Mmmmmmmm yummo green broccoli has to be one of the best vegetables on the planet and it fits this dish superbly. Pop it in the slow cooker on Sunday and go about your business of looking for four leaf clovers. I know I feel like I’ve already found some with so much to be thankful for ♥
