Small Successes


"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."

Not much to say except we're still hanging in there.
  1. School has been starting on time (give or take a few minutes) since we began. We've been faithfully praying our rosary decade (with meditation verses) and listening to a chapter of the Bible (the gospel of Matthew right now) every school day.
  2. The laundry is caught up. The hampers are not empty (are you kidding?), but there aren't enough dirty clothes to run a new load yet.
  3. Even with plenty of afternoon driving and activities, we've had a week of tasty dinners. Okay, the children didn't appreciate Friday's curried tofu and chickpeas (yes, really! with coconut rice!), but everything else was acceptable: steak kabobs (Joe's meal), chili, pot stickers, pork lo mein, and beef BBQ. Tonight: quesadillas. Tomorrow: manicotti.
What are your successes this week? Be inspired by other moms here.

The tofu WAS yummy, especially on the coconut rice, with a dollop of yogurt and cilantro sprinkles!
