Small Successes

FaithButton

Danielle Bean says, "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 spackled! We have MANY holes & scratches on the walls around our house, including around our new patio door, so I patched them. Painting the house is out of our budget at the moment, so we'll have to face some white spots for a while. But it's a step in the right direction, right?

2) After I spackled around the new door, I drilled holes & hung up our new curtains. They're a few inches off the kitchen floor, but w/ four munchkins & the kitchen table right near the door, I don't think that will be a problem!

3) I took our camera to our family reunion on Sunday AND took a lot of really good photos! This is a success because I usually forget that we have the camera until the last minute.

Have you had any successes this week that you'd like to share? Stop by Faith & Family Live.

Yeah, spackling is way out of my league! I don't hang things, either. And I don't move furniture...I'm sensing a "Kansas Dad edition" of small successes in the near future...

Spackling? Be sure to add carpenter to your list of jobs you've listed in your profile. Can totally relate to #3 I'll have to remember that one as a success in the future!

I love #2, but #3 is really impressive. I always forget my camera!

HiHo Munchesmom! Yea you for mastering a new skill! I love me some spackle. I just did two rooms in my house as we prep for painting. Now to pick the right colors. Argh!
Great week! Enjoy the weekend...

Spackling is a big one. We, too, have a number of tiny holes in various places. Maybe I'll give it a whirl.

Good job!

Thanks for all your comments ladies! I was amazed at how easy spackling was...almost (dare I say it?) addicting LOL!
