Fish on Fridays

I love fish... unless it's a Friday during Lent... then... I hate it.  It's kind of of like being on a diet and eating (or not eating) certain foods.  You might like fish usually, but once they're in front of you... that's the last thing you want.  Today we went to lunch and ordered fish and chips.  When I ate the same thing about 6 weeks ago... it really hit the spot but today... not so much.  On the surface it seems like a small sacrifice, but it's sacrifice none the less. The blessing behind all of this is that I'm not alone.  It is way cool to think that all practicing Catholics are doing the same thing...  We all share in the discipline and it's unifying.
