Small Success Thursday

Blogger was down last night when I wrote this so it's late getting posted today.  Sorry about that.
Each week, we take stock of how in the past week we did little things with great love.

With all the little things that define our days, it's easy for us to feel like we aren't doing enough in our daily lives to live out that wisdom of Blessed Mother Teresa.   So join in, make a list of the victories of your life in the past seven days and post it on your blog or in the comment section here.  Then add a link using Mr. Linky so we can come visit!

This week I:

1) Rented  truck and loaded it up with all the junk that was cluttering our basement and took it to the dump.  Very satisfying to see things go away.

2) Took the kids to the park to play and bought ice cream from the truck.

3) Went berry picking and came home and made two blueberry pies.  Yum!

4) Youngest son had surgery this morning and had tubes put in his ears.  The doctor said he had glue, not fluid in his ears (it was that thick with fluid)  --they were so clogged, it's a wonder he could hear at all.  (Part of the delay in posting).

5) Received the sacrament of Reconciliation this week, always good.

Now it's your turn! Thanks for coming by, leave comments of your little victories in the com box if you don't have a blog.  Otherwise, use Mr. Linky and be sure and drop by all the blogs that participate, it's part of the fun!

Sounds like you had quite the successful week.

Thanks for the reminder that I need to get my fanny over to Confession! I need to look up some times, since my local parish time doesn't work for me.

Go decluttering!

Glue, like for real glue, or just a huge amount of wax buildup?

Have a great long weekend.

SherryTex said...

Whew! What a full week! Sounds very successful! I am extremely glad you where able to take care of your son's ears! That sounds awful! Blueberry pie from fresh picked blueberries sounds completely amazing!

Monica said...

Love your list this week! Getting rid of stuff is so freeing (mentally & visually!) OMGoodness to the wax buildup! That IS a lot!

P.S. Thanks for accepting my FB friend request!

Decluttering is my favorite! Enjoy the extra space!

Wow, poor kid with his ears so clogged! Yikes. I have no idea how we have avoided tubes (especially when my second child had ear infections continuously for 18 months) but we've been blessed thus far (of course now that we are swimming, that may change!). You are my hero for the decluttering effort :)

congrats! that's a HUGE week! Gotta be satisfying cleaning up the bsmt that much!

Thanks for the confession reminder. How parish had to quit doing confessions at the time that was most convenient for us...I just needed that kick in the but to check out the nearby parish times :)

Tubes in the ears are amazing. My littlest has had then since she was 6 months old (had significant hearing loss). I know without them she would not be able to hear as well.

I hope he's recovering well.

and you forgot one of your successes... You gave comfort to a friend who was in great need. It turned everything around. :)

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.

If you sneak my work, No Chocolate for You!
