Small Successes: the Snowy Edition


"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."

  1. Len and I are hosting a dinner meeting for 24 next week, and last night finalized the menu, including choosing the entrees we will buy from a local restaurant. Of course there's still plenty of work to do, but having a PLAN takes such a load off my psyche!
  2. Virginia is expecting another snowstorm tomorrow (current projections: up to 2 feet). I got to the grocery store early this morning (no mascara, no shower), before all the school kids were on their buses, and was able to make it through my regular weekly list before the store started filling up. Business was noticeably picking up before I left. Len works every other Saturday, but the payoff is having him home on some weekdays.
  3. More "happy moment" than success: In the wintertime my morning walk is usually on the sidewalk in the dark. Wednesday I had the opportunity to walk through the newly snowy woods . . . in daylight . . . with a camera. Refreshing!
What's going right at your house? See how other moms are doing over at Faith and Family Live.

It was a foggy morning.Standing under the lacework:The gargantuan snowman was built later in the morning, after we had done some schoolwork. He was immediately destroyed--with one of David's swords!When the snow began late Tuesday, Marianna and a friend built this gal in the front yard. She made a boy the next day, then demolished them both with the sword.
