Small Successes- It's Thursday!

1. We had a little family reunion this past Saturday at my house. It was a great day. Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of memories. It took us close to 2 years to have 10 of the grandchildren together under one roof. Lots of sadness saying good bye too. Small success was that I had everyone here and I did not freak out! I cleaned and organized only as much as a momma with 6 little ones could and I did not fret. Good for me!
2. I called Daddy home when I was sick. I try not to disturb him at work but the other day, I could not go on. It was an allergy attack like no other. I could not function. Could not think. Could not keep my eyes open. Poor me and Daddy came to my rescue. He is a trooper~! Then the following day- I got hit with mastitis! ouch! I did not call him home that day. Instead, my 8 year old made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. Amazing when the children step up and kick it up a notch with what they can do. What a crazy health week it has been for me.
3.This morning was a bit unsettling with the kids acting up in all sorts of ways. My father in law was on his way over when I even threatened to call him and tell him not to come. I did call but he came anyway. Sweet talker that he is. Actually I am glad he did. The kids acted better and it's a rainy day so it was good to have him here. Small success here is being flexible with finding out God's will and being okay with God's will.
God bless,

I'm so sorry with the sick attacks, but you made me smile with your grace, and I know God is too. What a woman you are!!

Popping over from F&F to say congrats on your successes! I feel for you with the mastitis...
I had it when my son was 2 months old and in the children's hospital 3 hours from home. I had to ask the pediatrician on call to order my son a breastpump! The Lord looks out for us moms though---our insurance covered it! :0
God Bless!
