I usually only drink one cup of coffee a day, about mid-morning. The rest of the day I drink tea so you wouldn't think coffee would be such a big issue. But believe me, not having that one cup on wednesdays and fridays is the hardest part of fasting for me. It seems that wherever I go on those days, someone is deliberately percolating coffee just so that I walk by as it wafts into the atmosphere. I don't think I even notice on other days
The bread part isn't too difficult just boring. Then I try and remind myself that for some people in the world (many), that one bit of bread is all that would sustain them that day. I have no right to be bored !
Does all this mean I find it easy. No absolutely not. Its always challenging and there are times when I fall far short of the ideal. However, I keep trying because Our Lady's words echo in my mind " you are not helping me" so I hope my poor attempts help her a little.
