This week has flown by and yet I find myself longing for Friday. Family matters and a statics test preoccupied my mind early in the week. Both ordeals were faced, neither with much success, but nonetheless marked off the to-do list and prayers said for the outcomes.
In need of respite I loaded up my crew for a day of errands. I know the sheer mention of such an ordeal is enough to send some into an anxiety crisis. For this homeschooling family however, any time out of the house is a treasured time with the potential for adventure outweighing the bickering in the back seat. With the crew preoccupied in the backseat and my copilot busy tending to his copilot duties I managed to earn myself a total of eight slug bug sightings! Eight! I was so impressed with myself! The kids however did not share in my enthusiasm. I don't remember why exactly, but I think it was something like they weren't playing. Details, schmetails. The point is I won with a record breaking total of 8 slug bug sightings. YES!!
As I continue to celebrate my win I see that regardless of the burdens from the week my head was clear enough during our outing to pay attention to my surrounds. Perhaps that's the real success of this week.
Celebrating my #smallsuccess of the week is my way of counting my blessings. I recognize His hand in my life and some days I actually get the chance to share my gratitude in written word. You can read the #smallsuccess of others at www.catholicmom.com/SmallsuccessThursday
You are invited to join in the celebrating by sharing your #smallsuccess too!
