Small Successes

FaithButton

Okay here goes:

1)For three weeks in a row we have planned out and mostly stuck to lunch and dinner menus! Unlike Rachel, I actually have to plan the meal first and then see if I have the ingredients. I'm not doing more than one week at a time at this point. But these successes are supposed to be small, right?

2)I have successfully taught my daughter that the rosary is not to be swung around. She is two, so this is major. She knows and most of the time remembers to sit quietly next to me while I pray and hold her rosary.

3)I am making a concerted effort to sit down each day with my husband to have an adult conversation.

I know, these are minutely small successes, but Rome wasn't built in a day and neither were cathedrals, and it takes a lifetime to get to heaven.

I've been struggling with meal planning, too. Since Steve is away at work most nights I find it harder to do the prep and cooking just for me and the kids. (esp when I have dietary restrictions.) The crockpot has become my friend.

Kristen,

If you manage to have an adult conversation with your husband even once this week...that's no small success! In this house it's huge!! Thanks so much for sharing your small successes!
