A Quickie

It’s Ash Wednesday, so just a (very) quick thought or two …

As part of our increased mindfulness this Lenten season (especially around the issue of food), I asked the congregation to use today to pay attention to everything they ate and to make a list.

So, here’s mine:

bowl of granola cereal w/ milk

bacon cheeseburger w/ fries and tea

several cups of tea (during an afternoon meeting)

3 pieces of pizza

Geez! That’s embarrassing. I’d blame it on the busy schedule today … but that doesn’t make me feel any better about it.

On the bright side, though: I managed to get through a whole day without any high fructose corn syrup (which is what I’m giving up for Lent.)
