Thank You

Wow.  I never post anymore.   This makes me sad, and I apologize for my lack of sharing.  And, I promise to remedy it soon.  A lot of my extracurriculars are starting to slow down, so hopefully you will hear more from the Tals.

In the meantime, I wanted to share that on this Ash Wednesday I am starting 40 special days.  When I was growing up I always had a few Catholic friends who gave something up for lent.  It was usually something like pop, chocolate, candy and sweets.  Honestly, I never really understood how 40 days of no chocolate would make someone a better Christian.  I understand the symbolism, and appreciate it, but as a non-catholic, non-denominational gal, it wasn't for me.

Again this year I am not giving up anything. Instead I am committing to be more thankful.  Each day until Easter I will write a thank you card.  I have much to be thankful for and often times I forget to express my gratitude.  Rather than giving something up, I want to start giving something back.  If you aren't giving something up--- come join me.

And because no post is complete without a picture of Charlie...
