This season is really important for Catholics, spiritually. I use this time to try and bring myself closer to God through more prayer and fasting.
We give up something that we're attached to for 40 days and also abstain from meat today and every Friday during Lent.
Broccoli and liver made a run for most loved foods, but sadly, they didn't make the cut this time. In the end, it was a heated internal debate between coffee and chocolate. If I'm going to be totally honest with myself, coffee is definitely much harder for me to give up.
So, I'm going to go with the major challenge and kicking coffee for the next 40 days.
No, I'm not crying.....yet!
