small successes (vol.7)...

"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 have cooked out of the freezer/pantry for the past week. It has forced me to think outside the box and be a bit more creative but that is not a bad thing. It's been fun to come up with new frugal ideas. So far there has been only one true disaster that required the windows to be opened. Lesson learned. Brussels sprouts need to be treated with kids gloves.

I tried to be better prepared each day this week by setting out clothing and other necessaries the night before. I used to do this all the time when I was homeschooling but had gotten out of the habit since Jonathan left for college. It has brought a sense of peace back to my morning.

Had a really good conversation with said son. He has a more positive attitude this week. I am sure it is partly a result of the St. Joseph Novena I am saying. The power of prayer should never be underestimated! That and a really good care package from home doesn't hurt. ;0)
