Small Success Thursday

I'd written this beautiful piece and Blogger sent it into oblivion.  Bleah.

However, it is Thursday and thus we review the week to see how far we've come, to plan for where we wish to go, and to recognize that bit by bit, doing little things with great love, brings us closer to being the people we are called to be.

This week:

1) The Fall Festival was a great success and there were moments of sheer joy watching parents faces mirror their childrens at this event.  It must be something of what Heaven feels like, to see those expressions and feel seized with joy at the prospect of being so surrounded by happiness.

2) Worked out sort of, using the Wii Fit two days, push ups and sit ups the rest.  Will try to get more serious about this in the upcoming week.

3) Went to confession and to mass on St. Francis' feast day.  It's also a special family feast day, as it would be my first niece's 11th birthday.

4) Got asked to write a piece for the local Catholic paper. I'll link it if it gets published!

Now for the new feature, the This Week I'll:
1) Throw a birthday party for 25 kindergartners on Sunday
2) Try to improve my feeble exercise program
3) Work on Helen --actually put new words into it. 

Now it's your turn! (Thursday is my daughter's actual birthday so I won't be able to visit your blogs until late this evening but I can't wait to see what you've been up to this week).

So excited for your paying writing project! And the challenge it presents (getting to mass on's never easy!). Good luck with the birthday party.

Congratulations on your writing project! And I love your description of the Fall Festival. Sounds like a great time!

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