small successes (vol.35)...


"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."

Courtney's weight battle continues. There have been many lessons learned throughout this ordeal the biggest one is all about control. As in, I have none and GOD has it all. My job is to keep my nose to the grindstone and keep the lines of communication open. Daily prayer is crucial! It's the only way He can get my attention through all the noise of life.

Speaking of noise, I have done a lot of reading about different diets that would help with my current medical issues. It's lead to some serious self-examination about my relationship with food. It's been difficult and enlightening at the same time.

My success? That I am putting myself back on the list. If I don't do it, no one else will.

I am going to be taking advantage of an offer my mother and husband made on Mother's Day. I will be taking my laptop and heading north tomorrow for 48 hours, to do nothing but write. I will be ALONE without any distractions!

My success? I have prepared all of Courtney's formula, there are dinners prepped in the freezer and the house is all clean so that all my hubby has to do is enjoy the company of his daughter. This way there is no stress for either of us. I am just so grateful for the opportunity.
Thanks honey!
