Praise God for Small Successes


1. I went to Mass this morning! Often, the night before my day off I watch a movie until really late and then sleep in as late as I can...  if I've deemed I've woken up too early for a day off I'll force myself back to sleep. Awful, I know, but there it is. This morning I tried those shenanigans again but remembered a little picture from the Baltimore Catechism:

Amazing how those things can come back to you. So I got up, thank the Lord!

2. I made applesauce this week. In bulk... to freeze. Without a peeler/corer/slicer. My knife-handling hand is a little sore but it was worth it!

3. This isn't a success as much as a severe mercy of the Lord, but I was outbid on EBay on a frivolous item and didn't up my bid in order to "win." This is huge for me! I'm really really competitive and there's such a thrill to winning an auction that I've been known to spend way past what I should just so I can "win".

Check out others' small successes this week at Faith & Family Live!

I'm competitive, too, and have to remember that sometimes I should pursue things just for the fun of it, not to win! :)

I never regret it when the kiddos and I make it to daily Mass.

Great successes, and thanks for stopping over at my corner of Blogville. God bless!

I love #3! I have a real problem not upping my bids, too. God Bless!

(just curious!)
