small successes (vol.54)...


"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 missed you guys last week! It was crazy and filled with lots of ick! But I survived and this week has gone swimmingly. I have returned to the gym and have made dinner every single night. 

However, we will NOT discuss the state of the laundry or clutter. Walk away from the clutter...walk.a.way.

I am trying to stay in the mindset of "being blessed" no matter what comes my way. I wrote about our incredible parish mission last week and a few of the gifts I received from those four nights. 

I have done my B & B every day since. I am amazed at God's generosity. 

I am getting ready for a big Once a Month Cooking Day. I will be making 16 different dishes ( I promise to chronicle this here). I decided not to do the whole 30 day plan because I do like to cook from scratch on the weekends. This way I have four meals for Mon-Thur which are my busiest days of the week. 

My success is recognizing that I don't need to do the full 30. It's really OK to tailor the plan to me and my households needs. 

Crazy idea I know!
