I thought about chocolate ( I love chocolate all kinds) but I haven't been eating a lot of it lately so not really a sacrifice. I thought about other junk food, but again I don't eat enough of it to really say I should give it up. Then I thought about if there was something extra I could do every day. I couldn't think of anything creative to do there. So I thought some more what is something that I eat or drink everyday that would be hard for me to give up for lent. I thought.... and I thought some more... Diet Coke. I drink a lot of Diet Coke. Its my source of caffeine. I love it- the way it tastes, the bubbles, the sound the can makes when you open it up - everything I love everything about it. So I thought again there had to be something else that I had every day that I could give up. I found nothing. So with much hesitation I am giving up Diet Coke for lent. So as I sit here and write this I am drinking my last Diet Coke for the next 40 days.
So I ask you all to pray for me that I make it through the next 40 days without any Diet Coke. This is going to be hard!!!!
