Hiatus

This year I took a hiatus from life, going on trips and seeing groups I love. Spring is coming, Easter will be here real soon. Now for Lent what do I give up, 40 days and 40 nights to come. This year I have sacrificed, a year of 365 days and 365 nights. Much more than 40 days and 40 nights required, this year my Lent has been paid in full.
