Small Successes :: February 4, 2010
“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.”
really caught my attention, especially when I read “Once, long ago, when things were overwhelming me (and by things I mean 6, at the time, kids )”… That is so ME right now!! 😉
Anyhow, I was completely inspired and have been busy cleaning and trying to get our home back in order…

Does this look clean to you?
I took that picture after the boys “cleaned” their room yesterday…
I then found all this clothing crammed into every possible corner:
It got much worse before it got better!
Is it just me, or does that happen to you too?
About four hours later we were all done and it’s so much cleaner!

While cleaning the boys room I bagged up one bag of trash and three bags to donate,
and three more stacks to box up and save for Snuggles.

Today we worked on the girls room.
It didn’t take near as long but still needed a good cleaning.
We filled another bag with trash as well as a bag of clothing to donate.
That should make it much easier for them to keep their rooms clean.
Now to catch up on the laundry and move on to the rest of the house!
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.
