Small Success Thursday

So I've been browsing the world of blogs again, just looking, getting inspired, you all know how it is sometimes.........

I'm going to have a go at linking up with some lovely blogs out there that I have found inspiring of late.

I have newly found a blog called Chocolate for your Brain, which I have found appealing to me as a fellow large family blogger.

Small Success Thursday

Mother Teresa said to do little things with great love, and sometimes when we're in the midst of doing, we forget the great love; and sometimes when we're in the midst of being that great love to others, we forget that this is actually a great thing we are doing. With that in mind, once a week we look back to see if we've come perhaps a smidgen closer to doing all those little things lovingly.

My youngest brother Jason stepping up and watching my 6 kids for me while I was in hospital, so that Mike could work so that we didn't fall behind in the bills.
Sitting in hospital waiting to hear results as to why I was in so much pain
More Mundane:
The washing pile needing to be tackled now that I'm back home
The cuddles and smiles from everyone when I came home from hospital.
Seeing all the kids playing together nicely making cubby houses in the yard (ban on computers this week lol)
Always a Treat:
Mike making spaghetti bog when I was feeling too sick to make dinner. (He is not a fan)
Good News Even if it's Not Great News:
Finding out that the cause of my pain was from a kidney infection, which I had always thought I would only suffer from when I know that is not the case and is something I will have to be mindful about.

Head over to Chocolate for Your Brain for more Small Successes!


  1. Prayers for you and your family and we moms of many have to stick together. Cute pictures!

  3. I like the way you formatted this post! Very creative!! Kidney infections are very painful! I am glad you are getting it taken care of and it was nothing more serious!
