What I'm giving up for lent--feeling guilty. It is still creeping back in and I am trying to nip it in the bud. Decided that food wasn't the thing for me to give up due to underlying reasons, so I'm reading The Purpose Driven Life again. Also will be journaling. I found the Purpose Driven Life leather journal at a garage sale last year for $1, and decided I will use that also. So far I have done it for three days...only 37 more to go.
My mom--Next week is her last week of chemo/radiation for this round. My two sisters and brother-in-law are taking turns staying with her, since they feel she shouldn't be left alone. She has bad mouth sores, and they have cut out one of the chemo drugs this last week. After this week, she has four weeks of rest. With me being three states away, it's easy for the guilt to creep up of me not being there.
