"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 faithfully clean clothes and get food on the table, but there are many days when I believe that's all I've accomplished. Our academic day more "un-" than "schooling?" Struggling (in vain, as it humiliatingly turned out) to stay awake through Bible study? A bare (after a week) Lenten Jesus tree?
Ah, well. Sometimes it's better to focus on the positive. In that spirit, here are some successes:
- I made our crown of thorns the day after Lent began. We hung our purple ribbons today. Most of our other decorations are up, too.
- So far I've kept my Lenten resolutions.
- I made a tasty Irish dinner tonight, BEFORE Len and the boys drove off to their Catholic boys' club meeting. Bonus: I posted the recipe!
