A good comeback — An observation on Lent

I, like most people, appreciate a good comeback. There are different kinds of comebacks: There is the “sports comeback” and we all saw that more than once this past football season with our Seattle Seahawks! There is the “joke comeback.” I grew up with a very quick-witted friend that had a pithy comeback for everything. He and his sharp tongue have been a source of some very good laughs down through the years but also some hurt feelings as the rapid-fire one-liners often hit a little below the belt and too close to home. Then there is my personal favorite: the “personal comeback.” This is when a person was good at something but somewhere along the line lost the “spark” that made them who they were and it appears as though they are gone … then all of the sudden … Bam! They are back and better than ever!
