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."

I don't really have time to be blogging, but here are some accomplishments anyway:
  1. For the first time since school started, I followed the master schedule and began teaching Marianna to sew. This is EPIC (as my kids would say) because I don't enjoy sewing, I'm not especially skilled at it (funny how those go together!), and it's not always easy for me to spend time on the softer side of school.
  2. I registered for a Catholic women's Bible study that is starting up in our parish this month. It was hard to make the weekly time commitment, but I've needed something like this for a long time.
  3. I've been faithful to my weight-lifting program. I skip days here and there, but work most. I've increased the weight (still miniscule) on several exercises and am back up to 20 reps. Someday I'll be strong!
How about you? Look for your mini-achievements, and be as happy for yourself as you would be for a friend. Find more successes here.

Yeah for your successes! I know exactly what you mean about not getting to the "softer" school lessons. I too struggle with this. As a matter of fact, I have been meaning to buy a book on begging sewing for my daughter to work on with her grandmother. I have yet to buy it. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your small successes.

God bless!

Great job on finding some time for yourself in your busy week. I just signed up for a yoga class that meets one night a week for the same reason (and for the same reason at #3 actually) Wow! What an inspiration!
