Mindfulness Calendar

Next Wednesday many of the people in my industry will be focused on a quilt show. I will be traveling to it but more focused on it being Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Christian season of Lent. While many people give up things for Lent, I love this calendar from Traci Smith that allows people to combine service, sacrifice and prayer with specific assignments throughout the holy season. It’s more of a mindfulness calendar encouraging you to send a card to someone who needs extra love or buy food for an animal shelter or not have screen time or simplify meals for a day. This calendar is great for families with kids in particular as it teaches sacrifice in different ways. I’d love to hear about how others observe holy days  whatever your faith.
