Small Successes and Thankful Thursdays • Vol. 10

My tenth weekly edition of Small Successes for moms (hosted over at Faith and Family Live) they say, it’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph.
  1. I survived the cloud of sickness that rested over our house over the last week. Jonathan was home sick for a day, then Thomas was down for the count, and I succumbed on Sunday. Thanks to the Vicks Vaporizer, lots of rest and fluids, and sunshine this week...we are on the mend.
  2. I was able to reschedule Thomas's baptism so Mom and Dad could be there. So grateful to Fr. Terence for his flexibility.
  3. I cleaned out the shelves by the washer and dryer. Organized them so that our bulk containers of laundry soap, dish soap, cleanser, etc. are neat and tidy. It cuts way down on extra packaging and costs by buying in bulk and using as needed. Thank you, Costco.

And what I'm thankful for this week...

  • Thomas getting better. It was hard to watch him with a stuffed up nose and coughing, but even more so when I got sick. Finally starting to get caught up with the rest of life.
  • A visit from Sandy. She was originally scheduled to watch Thomas when I was shooting last Saturday, but when he went down for the count, she came down and helped out with him on the farm. And I love catching up with her!
  • A sweet recipe from Sandra Q. When she was over and we were working on a project, she shared with me her favorite salad dressing recipe. I made it the other day and have put it on all kinds of things - chicken, prawns, veggies, rice. It is ridiculously good.

And to celebrate my super strong little boy...who is fifteen weeks old today.

I have 2 girls, and I STILL think he has to be the most adorable child EVER!!!

I'm so glad you all are well! I know what's that like. Glad you got a visit in, photography, and so much done around the house. It DOES feel good!

Much love, and many prayers. You are wonderful!!
