Last night I got my standard Ash Wednesday message from my mother. My loving, caring mother take times out of her day every year to send me a reminder to not eat meat on Ash Wednesday or on any Friday throughout the weeks of lent.
This has become a yearly exercise that even my friends find entertaining. My mother knows I am a vegetarian and that I am an atheist, but she still takes the time.
Well, this will be another lent that I do not eat meat on Fridays. It’s no longer hard to remember this.
