Hello and welcome to another week of Small Success Thursday!

Today, I thought I’d try something different. I know I count my blessings, but I want my kids to do so too. So I interviewed my kids and asked each, what were their small successes for the week. I told them they could say whatever they wanted, but limited video victories to one mention only.

1) Working on getting back on track in all the areas that went off.
2) Going to adoration more often.
3) Scheduled a lunch with a friend.

1) Went to movies with sister and Dad
2) Is going to the circus with best friend
3) Delivered 2 week notice for work, but worked extra hours this week.  Met target savings goal for summer.

  1. This is awesome.
    I wanted to let you know that I have been trying to link up for two days. I’m not sure if I have a bad connection (probably the case), but I did actually blog this week.
    I will keep trying.
