So, how are those New Year's Resolutions coming along? I've completely failed at one, haven't really had a chance to test myself on the second, and I'm doing so-so on the third.
Okay, so how are those Lenten resolutions coming along? Only three more days to go!
It's nice the way the calendar (and God, must never forget God) keeps giving us these second chances to do things right. New Year's ... Lent ... the end of the school year ... the start of the school year ... Advent ... these are all "bookmarks" in the calendar where we can make up our minds to do it right or at least do it differently this year.
But tell ya what, let's agree that we won't beat ourselves up for not hitting the mark on these resolutions, okay? Let's just do our best. If we fall, shake it off, get up and make another attempt tomorrow.
That's the recipe for sanity.
