Maybe slow going is what I wish I was doing. Lent is almost over and I feel like I've been on a treadmill.
This is the first Lenten season (and soon to be Holy Week) that I've lived as a mother.
All of my good intentions seem to be jumbled up and not coming to fruition.
The one thing that I have been good about is praying daily. And praying the Rosary. Oh, and I have been doing reflections with The Word Among Us.
Why???? Well, it's easy to do when I have a sleepy girl in my arms. It's part of our night time ritual.
I never intended to say a rosary w/Mary Jane every night, but that's what lulls her to sleep and it keeps me in a good state of mind. It definitely centers me.
J is teaching confirmation tonight (we alternate weeks). It's sort of nice to be home with a sleeping baby. I should probably get housework or something done but instead I am going to work with some new professional pictures we took w/my entire family :)
One last random thought.... The Word Among Us. I sort of equate it to USA TODAY. Not terribly meaty... but what a perfect reflection for an overtired mom. Seriously. It's light and not too long so I can commit to keeping my eyes open just long enough to read through it, pray and reflect.
