Ash Wednesday 2014

Well, Lent is officially here. I never made it to Mass today, but I know the readings (I always try to read the readings before attending Mass for Sunday — or in my case Saturday evening, Sunday vigil — or any holy day I intend to attend or will attend. At any rate, I prayed long and hard about my fasting this Lent and here’s what I came up with: I will fast/abstain from Pintrest. This is going to be very hard as I’ve grown addicted to it and am on it so many times throughout the day and well into the evening. The only way I will see Pintrest is through my email with my notifications, but I will NOT go to the site itself.

Anyway, so my blessing today was my phone call from my “Healthy Companion” nurse who calls me every 6 months or so to check in on me in case I have any questions or concerns about health, etc. She told me just how proud of me she is and that she doesn’t think I’ll be needing her as much any more. While I’ll admit I’m disappointed I can’t confide in someone about my health that understands or can give me a more down to earth explanation or speak in layman’s terms about the medical diagnoses, etc. I’m glad to know that this means I am finally going to be able to do things on my own and get somewhere I never dreamed was possible! I think one of the last times I’ll be talking to her will be around September.

Sorry I’m not writing much about Ash Wednesday itself, but I’m sure I’ve talked about it at great length elsewhere — if not I’m sure you can find several articles about it on the internet. Until then, I hope your Lent is off to a fabulous start!

God, bless every one of us!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
