Day 5 – 40 Days for Life, spring vigil
First Sunday of Lent
Beware of Congolese food!
Today I suffered the effects of last night's party. On Saturday evening after the vigil, I attended a children’s birthday party. The five-year-old celebrated was the daughter of one of the moms whom our pregnancy support program "Enceinte et Inquiète" ("Pregnant? Worried?") has helped. She and I have become friends since the daughter’s birth and on Saturday, she invited me to the party.
Enjoyable, it was. The bulk of the food was ethnic Congolese. I may have eaten too much as on this day, my stomach rebelled. Thanks go to the two mothers/vigil participants who today advised on how best to reestablish my digestive system.
