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." Over at Faith & Family they make a list of three small successes for that week. Here are my three:

1) Tom went and put tags on our suburban! This means that we actually have two usable cars! The success for me is that Tom goes to work at 7. I can still make it to mass at 8 without having to rush around and get everyone out the door at 7. I am also able to go visit friends, go do laundry, and so on without worrying about if I will have the car that day or picking Tom up after work.

2) My laundry is mostly done, folded, and put away! I have moved to a twice a week system thanks to my amazing wonderful mother-in-law(MIL) and sister-in-law(SIL)! Last Sunday my MIL and SIL approached me and said that they did not think it was a good idea for me to drag both girls through a laundry mat during flu season. They proposed that I do a few loads during the week at my SIL's house and a few loads on Sunday at my MIL's house during the weekly Sunday dinner. NO MORE LAUNDRY MAT!!

3) I have a friend! I am going to go visit another mom who has three children. Her second is two-and-a-half and her third was born the same week as Eliza. So perfect ages to be playmates with my children and we have a lot in common to talk about! I have a hard time making friends so it is wonderful to have another Catholic mom to talk to and visit with!

  1. Sometimes I wish we could manage with one car, but it is sooo much easier not too. You've had a very good week!

  2. Thank you for the comment on my blog about praying with my husband. I really need to work on that. I have a hard time (outside of Mass) praying with others - even with my kids I struggle.

    Also, congrats on the new friend!
