This is a good reminder for all us moms who are feeling overwhelmed with the magnitude of what needs to get done. The idea, propulgated by the folks over at Faith & Family Live, is that each mountain is climbed by a series of small steps (something we all know but frequently forget). So, I am joining other Catholic mom bloggers to post my small successes of today...
1. I planted a tree, with four-year old Tony's help. It's an Australian Bottle Tree and, by itself, makes our back yard look ready for spring. So what if my arms are sore from digging?!
2. I got all of my laundry done and put away today. That last part is the key, as I often get it all washed but rarely put it away the same day.
3. I exercised. 20 minutes on the Stairmaster. Under heavy pressure from my husband who wants to extend my life as long as possible, I have done this for nearly two weeks now, missing only the day after my treatment (which I TOTALLY get a pass for).
So there you have it. Not bad for a Thursday, and a treatment week to boot. Listing these things makes me feel a lot better about all the things that have not yet made this list. For, surely, they are to come.
So, what were your small successes today?
