Fat Tuesday

The Season of Lent is about to begin!  As we prepare for Easter, Mommy is encouraging us to give up something we really like for the next forty days.  That's more than a month!  This is such a difficult decision for us (and her too).  It really requires a sacrifice to give up something for FORTY days.   But that's the point, isn't it?

Mommy has tried to make some suggestions for each of us to consider.  It is really going to be hard to choose . . .

For Hunter, she suggests giving up one of the following:
  • barking LOUDLY when Mommy serves up breakfast and dinner
  • barking LOUDLY when he hears anything outside
  • barking LOUDLY when Dixie and Jenna rough house
(she refrained from asking him to just totally give up barking; it's in his nature!)

For Dixie, she suggests giving up:
  • licking the shower
  • hogging all of the tennis balls
  • worrying about which of us is receiving more love

For Jenna, any of the following sacrifices would be greatly appreciated:
  • stop eating the toilet paper
  • stop eating dirty tissues
  • stop standing in the middle of the kitchen during food preparation

This is going to be a tough decision to make.  We each love doing all of these things Mommy suggested.  It's a good thing we have until midnight tonight to decide . . .

Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking Him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. 
~ Daniel 9:3
