Small Successes

Recognizing the small things we accomplish each week helps us realize that even when it doesn't seem like it, we are getting things done! To link up your Small Successes each Thursday, go to CatholicMom.com. Here's the link.

1) I almost had an interview w/ a local news station. After our scary experience last Thursday, I wrote up a blog post & linked it to Facebook. Several people suggested alerting the news, so I sent it to a couple stations. A reporter emailed me to ask if I'd be available for an interview. However, w/ the devastation of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, my story got pushed aside. I did, however, get it out to as many people as I could on my own.

2) I helped a fellow traveler at the gas station the other day. Her car wouldn't start due to a dead battery. I helped get it jumped so that she could at least get to a place to purchase a new one.

3) I've lost another 2 pounds! This is the first time, in at least 12 years, that I have been below a certain weight. I actually need to use a belt w/ several pairs of my pants now.
