The Chocolate Sacrifice

Being brought up Episcopalian, and then went to Catholic school - I still feel the urge to give up something for Lent. Although, most people from my church now do not do this, I still know for me it is feeling the sacrifice that helps me understand THE sacrifice.

So I gave up Diet Coke -gasps from my friends who know this is my drink of choice! And hold on to your hat - chocolate!

It's been a week, and surprisingly the perfect drink is easily forgotten, however, I have accidentally eaten chocolate 4 times! And I just got my Girl Scout cookies. They are taunting me right now from the freezer....

So I'll let you know how it goes, but resisting the 40 days of temptation will make for an even more blessed Easter!
