1. Last Friday we hosted a party for 40 people - with less than 48 hours notice! A priest was visiting our TLM community while home from Mexico where he is assigned. He celebrated Masses and led the rosary for our weekly candlelight vigil at the clinic and so we decided to have some families over to throw him a little party. My friends helped out by bringing some food, my wonderful children did most of the cooking (all's I did was make punch and a cheese ball and steam carrots) and we all had a very enjoyable and blessed evening.
2. We made a huge cake for the coffee and donut time at church on Sunday to thank the social coordinators for all of their hard work. Lydia baked the cake and I frosted it. The cool part was writing Matthew 25:44-45 (abridged) all around the perimeter of the cake. I think it came out very nice.
3. Our Suburban has been in the shop for two weeks leaving me home without a car, and I haven't cracked up from cabin fever. I didn't even whine when I didn't get to go on the nature walk last Sunday, as we don't all fit in Michael's van. I was very thankful they came back with pretty pictures.
I think I should get a bonus #4 as I actually remembered it's Thursday and Small Successes Day! Do visit Faith and Family to read lots of other successful moms.
