St. John of the Cross, Lent, and Motherhood

"As for the first, it is plain that the appetites are wearisome and tiring. They resemble little children, restless and hard to please, always whining to their mother for this thing or that, and never satisfied."

(Ascent of Mount Carmel, Book One, Chapter 6).

My goal for Lent 2013---Ignore the whining of my appetites!
