small successes (vol.53)...

"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."

This week has been crazy! I feel like I have been running without ever reaching a destination. It's downright exhausting. So when the washer overflowed yesterday at a most inopportune moment in my day, I decided that enough was enough. I stopped and sat with my daughter. I prayed a little, sang a little and just took a moment to breathe.

Sometimes you just need to get off the merry-go-round and be still. Then you have the energy to clean up all the messes life brings you.

The laundry room flour is all sparkly clean!

I have been cooking out of the deep freeze and pantry trying to use what's on hand in order to save money and time. I figure I have about two more weeks before I can defrost the deep freeze to get ready for the next Once-A-Month Cooking extravaganza. 
Thanks for your chicken recipes. They have been quite delish! 

I have prayed the Rosary everyday while driving Courtney to school each morning. It has really helped get my day going in the right direction. It's always good to have Mother Mary right with me.

I am going to extend the deadline for my newest giveaway until 8 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Sept. 16). So check out this post and register for a chance to win an awesome book "Choosing to SEE" from May Beth and the CD "Beauty Will Rise" by Steven Curtis Chapman. 

Blessings and Grace.
