Small Successes

What did you get right this week?

I love this meme from Danielle Bean. It reminds me of St Therese's beads, for some reason. So here are my small things.

  1. I cleaned the house. It is not perfect, but it has a nice clean glow to it. There are clear surfaces. Nothing more beautiful and serene than a few clear spaces!
  2. I got up early every day to make my highschooler a hot breakfast and drive him to the bus stop and talk for a couple of minutes in the car before he goes off with his backpack to face the long day.
  3. I managed to get my two youngest children constructively through two battles that threatened to become epic, rather than just withdrawing from the situation or stuffing down the conflict as I was tempted to.
