The Little Things

I have spent a lot of my energy lately feeling bad about what I haven't accomplished, whether it be the amount I get done in a day, or something grand that I can claim. So I am putting my foot down about this nonsense! From now on I am going to acknowledge all the little things, and yes even the not so little things, that I accomplish and I am going to give myself a mighty cheer!

I would guess that I am not alone in feeling this way, which is crazy because I know all of you and I know what you do...SO I suggest that you all put your foot down too. Recognize how glorious you are and give a mighty holla! Everyday take time to make a list of the things that you do to keep those around you running. I am pretty sure you will find that all of those little things you don't acknowledge add up to some pretty grand accomplishments. You do laundry, you do dishes, you do diapers, you do your hair, you hug your kids, you teach them why saying "butt" is not a good idea, you sweep, you mop, you cook, you clean, you stop cleaning to play with your kids, you lose at Candyland, you watch a baseball game with your hubby, you fulfill your calling, you pray, you serve your friends. See! I told you that you do a lot.

If today all I did was make some loaves of bread, well lucky us because aren't they yummy! YEAH ME!!!

Of course you would post something so profound. Isn't it good to know that I'm not the only one who feels I waste too many days! Thanks for the thought. I'm gonna have to refer to this post at the end of every day!
