It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
1) The family Christmas letter is done! It passed the preview of my personal editor, Haus Meister, but then my color ink cartridge gave up the ghost. 😉 At least I can try to get some of our cards out by the weekend. 😉
2) I changed the front porch lightbulb. Hey, small successes, right? 😉 And it only took one pregnant woman to change a lightbulb.
3) I let myself relax my ambitions a little and decided to forego trying to finish Princess’ personal cross-stitched stocking and her homemade nightgown for Christmas. A cute snowflake blanket sleeper and last year’s homemade first Christmas stocking will do just fine. It has been very hard not to try and do everything I had planned, but I remind myself that there is always next year, and I just need to keep working on the stocking throughout the year instead of waiting until the late Fall to pick up the needle again. 😉
