Small Successes: Company's Coming!


"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 do exactly that."

Check out other words of encourangement over at Faith and Family Live.

Since Marianna's godmother is coming today (hurrah!), I finished a few jobs that don't get tackled frequently enough:
  1. I cleaned the fridge. I washed while my four assistants emptied, dried, and refilled. There were surprisingly few "What's this?" moments; it needed cleaning much more than organizing.
  2. I scrubbed a bathtub. All by myself. Wow!
  3. I changed the linens on the guest (a child's) bed. This shouldn't be noteworthy, but we are going for small successes, right? ;-) Actually, I'm in the process of cleaning multiple sheet sets belonging to those who collapsed into bed after a long, sweaty day at the amusement park without taking a shower first.

That's it--enjoy your day! By the way, if you missed the post about our family's summer reading tradition, you can catch it here. (Hmmm.... a very linky post today.)

The house looked much better than the one I left that morning.

Thanks for the clean sheets and towels. I am just sorry that we couldn't spend any more time together before you had leave...and I had to time.....
