Small Successes :: November 12, 2009
“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.”

Tuesday night was Bunco. It was nice to have an evening out! We usually stop playing after 3 rounds, but this month we had extra time and played a 4th… At the end of round 3 I was in the lead with “Most Buncos,” but then two of my friends caught up and we had a three way tie for first place. I lost in the roll off. Oh well… I still came home with the 2nd place prize for “Most Wins!”

I charged the battery on our video camera (it has been dead forever!) and finally captured a bit of Snuggles adorable personality last night on video. It was so much fun and he kept the whole family laughing all evening!

We celebrated the feast of St. Martin of Tours, also known as Martinmas Day, last night. Here is a picture of the Lanterns the children made. “L” is for Lantern you know, and it is L week around here! 😉
Despite these few small successes, I still have a TON to do to get ready for the 12 girls coming over this afternoon for Little Flowers, which means I better get busy! I hope you all have a great day!!
What are your Small Successes this week?
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
