Each Friday, I post Flashback Friday, where I use St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Examen as a guide and usually ask the following questions: For what are you least grateful this past week? For what are you most grateful this past week
Lent. Yep, I’m least grateful that I didn’t make it to Mass once during Lent and that I’m not sure when I’ll make it again, even maybe not this Sunday, Easter of all times, as I’ll be going to my parents for Easter and probably will be using the time I’d go to Mass for travel time. I also am ungrateful that I didn’t perform simple acts of kindness like the one that was extended to me at the start of this Lenten season. If anything, I’ve probably been less than kind…which I partially blame on the weather (continues to suck), but also I blame on myself…along with “this war and that lying son of a bitch Johnson.”
Online friends, including, but not limited to, the following folks:
- A group of book bloggers, whom I’ve been joining each Saturday on Twitter for the last few Saturday to watch an Alfred Hitchcock movie. We started with Sabotage, then watched North by Northwest and Strangers on a Train. This Saturday night at 10 p.m. Eastern time, we will be watching Dial M for Murder. Join us at #hitchfest.
- Pam of Bookalicious, who sent me a copy of Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, earlier this week. I can’t quite remember the exact circumstances of why she sent me the book, but I think it’s after she read it and reviewed it, she was singing its praises on Twitter and I told her I hadn’t heard of it, so she said she’d send a copy of it. Now I’ll have to see what all the hype is about…probably within the next month or two, since I’m a little tied up with the Harry Potter series right now and also George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice series.
So for what are you least grateful and most grateful this past week?
