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."

Looking back, I can find some satisfying accomplishments:
  1. I tidied up the pantry.  Not the whole thing, of course, but the floor (yes, I have a nice, big pantry!) is visible and some important shelves have been reorganized.
  2. The girls and I are ahead of our plans in science!  Even better, our latest Netflix science movie has arrived--great viewing, with just a bit of parental commentary needed when the narration gets overly Darwinian.
  3. Yesterday was a busy day with lots of driving and time out of the house--not the most comfortable for this confirmed homebody.  Even though I'm doing what needs to be done, I often look back on a day like that (especially if I'm still preparing dinner at 7:00) and wonder if I accomplished anything significant.  At least last night I could glory in the fact that I had managed to get to the post office and ship three items, including a box to Greece.  Hurrah!
Look back and find out what you've succeeded at this week.  Be inspired by other moms here.
