Small Successes


Small Successes: from Faith and Family.  
It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we’ll do exactly that.
Here's mine:

1. I made it to daily mass on Monday this week!! I haven't been to daily mass for so so long and I really missed being able to go, so inspired by my retreat last month, I packed up the kids (all five of them) and headed out the door. We walked over to our local church and almost got there on time!!  Besides a short escape into the choir loft after communion, the twins did pretty good.

2. I got up almost every morning at 6:20 to say my morning prayers and get ready for the day without all the kids helping me.  One morning I didn't make it because I was sick and had been up all night.  But I did do my prayers later in the day.. so YAY!! I can do it!! 

3. I made cookies yesterday!! And a Chicken in the crock-pot and mashed potatoes and even gravy!!! It helps when I plan ahead and then follow through with the plan.  Most nights, I'm wondering what to make at 4pm.  

Whew! That was fun :-)  Wonder what I will accomplish next week?  Tune in next Thursday (if I remember LOL) for more of my small Successes.  Add your own at the Faith & Family website.

Yes, I know morning prayer is the way to go, but its so easy to get caught up in the morning craziness. I commend you for setting aside time.
