"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. "
The past few weeks have been hard as I've written about here. Wasn't feeling very successful so I didn't post. This week I have done better so I thought I would join in once again.
1. I sent the first care package of the year to Steubenville. J was thrilled and we had a great conversation Wednesday night. I am still trying to figure out the balance in this parent/college student relationship, when to step in and when to stay out. It's challenging but hopefully I am doing better as we go along.
2. I wrote a baking plan AND have stuck to it regarding my contributions for the Labor Day Picnic at church. It's the 150th Anniversary of our parish so we are expecting a huge crowd on Monday. I make things each year for the Country Store which are sold with the money going to different parish needs like Project Gabriel or another outreach. I tend to go overboard each year, so this time I wanted to stay on track and get it all done WELL! No burned cookies or pies.
3. I kept calm last night when the water heater went out and Courtney still needed a bath. My husband STRUGGLED with his frustration and I tried to stay very calm and positive which is NOT my first inclination. Working together we got the job done without anyone needing to go to confession. This morning I am waiting patiently for the repair man. God is good. Patience is apparently a virtue I need some work on and He is giving me plenty of opportunities for grace.
Blessings and Grace,
