Sunday was my mom and dad's anniversary. They have been married for 29 years!!
and they have produced 3 kids (that's us), one is a doctor, one is a housewife and blogger extraordinaire and one is the soon-to-be wife of a doctor!! (laughing)
Well my point is we are all pretty happy folk, and we have our parents to thank, I love them so much, I brag about them all the time, most of our friends have become honorary daughters and sons because it just looked like so much fun to them. and it is.
I am so thankful for them.
They are the reason I like myself.
Because they love me so much I am driven to make them proud, and can clearly see the importance of loving one's family, which is what it's all about!

"Ashes are a sign of penitence for the sin in our lives"
This Lenten season I am giving up shopping for clothes for myself.
Here's what I said about Lent last year:
Today marks the beginning of the 40 days leading up to Easter, we call it Lent. During the Lenten season we are called to focus on our spiritual relationship to God and grow in faith. To help focus our minds more on God we make a resolution of some kind, either to sacrifice something you like to do (like eat McDonalds) or add something good and selfless to your life (like make breakfast for your husband). We wear ashes on our foreheads today as an outward sign that says "we believe". We also do not eat meat on Fridays during this time as an extra way to remind us that the season is not about doing exactly what you want to do , when you want to do it, but to focus on a more holy goal. I enjoy this time that is specially prescribed in the Catholic church to work on our Godliness, and therefore, our ability to love like He loves,
