Small Successes

I need to stop and count the small successes of this week. It has been a rough week so it is important to remember it hasn't been without it moments!

1) I cleaned out the huge pile of clothes in my room and did all the laundry in the house! I had let this get WAY out of control so I spend two days washing, sorting, folding, and putting away clothes. I am glad to announce I AM CAUGHT UP!

2) I took up running! I found I really enjoy running! I don't go far or for very long (I don't have any stamina) but I love it! I do it right after the girls have gone to sleep and the dishes are washed!

3) I have stayed caught up on dishes! I don't know why I struggle with this. I hate hand washing dishes and we don't have a dishwasher so it is easy to get behind but this week I stayed on top of it!

I also want to take a moment and count some of my blessing:

1) I have the blessed opportunity to attend daily mass on a regular basis!

2) I have the most wonderful, amazing, loving husband! I could not have asked for a better partner in life!

3) I have the two most adorable girls of all time! They are so affectionate and loving!

4) I own a very beautiful little home! We have a big yard for the girls to run in and have a wonderful garden!

5) I have wonderful in-laws!

6) I have loving family who I talk to on the phone everyday!

7) Out garden is beautiful! It looks like we are going to have a great harvest on our first year!

    I love your "small successes recap" each week. I need to start doing this, too, because I so often get discouraged that I am not accomplishing much, when in actuality, there are lots of little things that do get done. Counting one's blessings, too, is a wonderful pick-me-up! :)

  2. Great job this week...esp. on #1 & 3. Those are both huge tasks that I dread.

  3. Congrats on a great week! I too hate laundry and dishes and they are what I must do most often daily. I use paper plates for breakfast and lunch to help cut back on the dishes though, wish I could use paper clothes.
