Keeping My Cool

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. Last Tuesday I had the worst day ever with the kids. The girls are both battling colds and I think that combined with the craziness of Halloween weekend finally reached boiling point. In the hour or so before naps, we were all in tears more than once. I am pleased to report I did not lose my temper. I don't even think I raised my voice. Eventually, all three kids fell asleep. I worked out (since I had missed on Monday) and after naps, everyone was much happier.

2. I'm counting #1 twice. It was that awful.

3. I finally chopped and froze the last of the serrano peppers.

  1. I'd count it 3 times!!! Good for you. Sadly, I lost my temper the other night. I'm still ashamed. Thanks for your inspiration and modeling.

    Have a great week!

  2. Yea! Great successes, especially #1! Keeping your cool in a melt-down situation is a huge successes and you have a right to count it twice!! Thank you for sharing and God bless!

  3. Thanks for your support, ViolinMama and Kelly. I certainly didn't feel like I was under control. There were a lot of prayers being offered up, that's for sure.
