Sweating The Small Stuff

It's important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week Faith and Family Live! encourages us to do just that!

1. We've had a busy week with lots of appointments and things to do - but we haven't missed or been late for any of them. :)

2. Despite being pregnant and feeling as though I might be out of place, I made it to my Lindsay's bachelorrette party. I've known her since 1st grade and she promised me she didn't mind a pregnant woman tagging along.... Turns out that I wasn't the only preggo there (although I was definitely the farthest along). But I had a great time! We all enjoyed dinner at Bugatti's, went across the way to see That 80's Band at the blues bar - but really ended up watching the last 4 innings of the Cardinal's 20-inning loss, and then I even let Lizzy put $40 in various slot machines at the casino before deciding that my body needed to get to bed.

3. It's now 8:30am and little man is still sleeping! Not really my success...but nonetheless, it warranted sharing. My success should be that I have resisted the urge to do 9,000 chores and instead I've enjoyed the quiet, drank my coffee, watched Good Morning America (not Mickey Mouse Playhouse), and had a chance to say some morning prayers. We're going to have a GOOD day today!

Enjoy this wonderful Earth Day! The sun is shining, the weather is beautiful and we're going to enjoy some time at the park later this morning - we know you're jealous!

Check out other mom's successes over at Faith and Family Live! There are some seriously inspiring women over there!



  1. Great job on #3, there are always chores, and always will be chores. Moments of peace are few and far between.

  2. What a GREAT list. Very inspirational for me, even with a new baby due within days? weeks? Just like you! So exciting! Bless you for inspiring me to keep going!!

    Much love!
