Small Successes


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.
  1. I finally shipped off the afghan I made for my niece who is getting married Saturday (8/21). I've had this made since May, but thought it best to mail closer to the wedding date. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!!
  2. I LOVE to sleep however, I've found with age and my bladder waking me at night getting back to sleep isn't as easy as it once was. Because we don't have to rush out the door to get any where (most mornings) I sleep until I wake. This week I've started setting my alarm and have been forcing myself up regardless of how I slept the night before. I'm thinking this new routine will allow me to sleep more easily regardless of waking up. So far, not too bad, but I'm going to continue.
  3. Another niece had a baby on 8/6. Not sure why I had nothing knitted to send her, but this week I've nearly finished 5 bibs, that will be in the mail tomorrow!
I'm pleased with my week! Thank you God for another wonderful week to be a stay-at-home wife and mother! I've got the best job in the world!!


  1. Sounds like a good week for you...congratulations!

  2. Getting up when you don't HAVE to is hard. I know from experience :)
    Great job sticking with it!

  3. Michelle, wow, what a neat gift. It is always such a great thing when someone will invest their valuable time and talent to bless you with a gift. You certainly have reason to consider this a very fruitful week.

  4. Homemade baby and wedding gifts are so wonderful. I can just imagine the joy your nieces will have when they open this little packages of love. Great week!

  5. One of your successes is one of my goals (waking up regardless of how you slept). Thanks for the inspiration!
