This was my first time attending a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper. My parish didn't offer confession, but I made a private one in prayer this morning. The Bumper had so much fun!. The Bumper got to try waffles for the first time, and her little eyes went wide with delight (She was so cute making her little mmm sounds). The best part of the evening for me was watching her chase balloons and dance to the music they had playing in the church hall. Tomorrow the season of prayer, penance and alms giving begins. Tonight I am asking God to prepare my heart this Lenten season, so that I may rejoice come Easter tide.
