"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 haven't participated in Faith and Family's "Small Successes" project for many weeks now. It's good to be back! Here are some little things that are going right:
- I did real school work with Rebecca several days this week. Since she's a young kindergartener, I sometimes let my time with her slip away in favor of big kid school or my own chores. Becca has finished the phonics book, so we're now using junior readers--lots more fun!
- Many neighbors came for Soup Night yesterday. We had a great time. Since I made too much soup (no RSVPs and my tendency to overdo make this almost inevitable), dinner tonight is already prepared. :-)
- I've set a new rule for myself: no "fun" online time unless I've spent time in "real" prayer. For me this means Bible or other spiritual reading along with meditation/listening/active prayer. This will either improve my prayer life or decrease my online browsing; either way I win.
