Small Successes


Some weeks I start noticing and drafting my small successes days in advance, but there are also times when my wheels are spinning and I don't see what's going right. This week has been a spinner! I reflected, though, on the past 24 hours and realized that good things are still happening:
  1. I went to Confession yesterday, I think for the first time since Advent. I had something "new" to confess--actually an old fault I'm finally WILLING to deal with. Father was so helpful, offering encouragement for my change, cautioning me about how to fill the hole left when a fault is excised, and challenging me to make time for another step forward (visits, even short ones, to the Blessed Sacrament).
  2. Late last night I finished writing an article (about Christian Seder celebrations) for a new website. (It's not up yet.)
  3. Even though I was up late (not recommended!), I got out of that cozy bed early enough to take Dusty (and myself) for a good walk AND make a special breakfast for the men who don't stay home (Len, David, Daniel). We homeschoolers have a two week cycle menu for our lunches, and today's selection is egg and bacon sandwich. That's considered a treat here, so I like to offer it for breakfast to those who leave early.
