On a side note, another innocuous change in me as a parent as I've grown older is found in my lunch offerings for my fourth child, our bonus baby. Yesterday, she had samosas (a fried slightly spicy meat pie that is the food of heaven) and marshmallows for lunch. I was tempted to feel "parent shame" until my oldest son (who I had messaged her menu to) said, "It's ok. Let her enjoy life." The student has become the teacher!
Those things frustrating you, those unfair, unrighteous, unholy, difficult things that anger you - let them go.
I’m truly blessed that you have journeyed with me these three weeks. Now that the fast is over, I look forward to a wonderful vision-filled year!
