I always give up something for Lent, but didn't this year.
I am 48, married, have two children, live in France, grew up in Willows California, have gray hair, wrinkles and I am not tall. I lived a few years in a monastery. I had a serious illness, it confirmed my belief in miracles and prayers. I grew up in a big Portuguese family...with millions of cousins, four brothers and wonderful parents.
Roller coasters, dancing, cooking, exaggerating and antiquing (duh!) are some things I like to do. I have spare time.
Ironing, learning French, and politics I try to ignore.
