Thumbs down giving up?

I find it so interesting, as a formerly "practicing catholic", that so many of you young folks are intent on giving something up that you like to do. My own daughter, who was for a very short time raised in this tradition, also does the same thing, which still mystifies me to this day, almost 35 yrs later, because she is not a practicing ANYTHING! For myself, I have thought that perhaps the best way to "celebrate" Lent is to do MORE....more of being kind, thoughtful, honest, sincere.....while at the same time celebrating being alive ( my thoughts are colored somewhat by having to put my beloved greyhound to sleep just yesterday, and the realization that life is really very short!) I will look forward to seeing you again.....but hope you change your mind!
