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.
My small successes this week were:
- Was able to hang every load of laundry this week except for 3 (2 were towels which I don't hang). Not sure if this is saving me any money on the electric, but I have to imagine it helps.
- Out of the past 7 days I've gotten up and walked 5 of them! My motivation for walking in the morning again is for the endorphins it creates. I truly need them, especially this week as we approach the 1st anniversary of my father's death. But, hopefully it is helping me get healthier too.
- This last one I'm torn on considering it a success. Mike and I met with the guidance counselor at the public high school, Jacob is seriously contemplating going this year which will be his sophomore year. We have home schooled him since 4th grade and he has always been happy doing that. However, this year is different I guess. We have still yet to decide if he will be going, but I'm considering this a success this week overall. Because if I'm doing what is necessary to support one of my kids in their decisions that is a success. (I'm sure I will be blogging more about this HUGE decision we are facing later.)
