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) I took stock of the kids’ clothes for Spring/Summer since we’ve had a brief taste of warm weather lately. While doing so, I found that I already had Easter dresses for the girls! I stood in their closet looking at two practically matching pink Easter dresses with coordinating hats and I thought to myself: “When the girls already have these, why bother making those blue dresses for Easter? Make them for Mother’s Day!” Sometimes making myself decide these things is an accomplishment. Besides, now I’ve given myself a few weeks to find material to make a relatively matching Mommy dress for Mother’s Day. 😉
2) I bought a bookshelf for our family room. Books are our friends; we have them in nearly every room. Each bedroom has a small bookcase (or two, as in our room). We now have five bookshelves in the family room, although one is reserved for our school books, workboxes, etc. Another bookshelf was one of the many things we planned to get eventually, and now we did.
3) I took care of the junk shelf in our kitchen. Some people have a junk drawer, well, we also had a junk shelf in one of our cabinets. I acquired a utensil crock and then went about reorganizing things. Ah, the difference!
