Danielle Bean, over at Faith &F amily, believes we moms are often too hard on ourselves and should celebrate our small successes. I concur. On her blog, she asks blogging and non-blogging moms to share their small successes every week. Here are mine:
1. My 17 year old son, who until recently breathed fire in my direction whenever he was in the same county as me, just walked into my room and invited me to a concert. Given how rocky our relationship has been over the past few hormone-enriched years, that is a success.
2. No one died of starvation or food poisoning this week.
3. Although not a strictly-mothering related item, I have remembered to give the dog his medicine (almost) every day this week.
We take our victories where we can get them. Onward, Christian mothers!
