Remember Small Success Thursday?

Happy Thursday!

Small Success Thursday is BACK and on Instagram, but I thought I’d bring it back here too, on account of – I wanna! HA

I usually get up with Marque about 0445 to make his breakfast, put together his lunch, and get him coffee… he leaves by 0520. But this mornin, there were 🐜🐜🐜 all over the covered bagel in his lunch box (he left it to thaw)… ugh. Yeah, this place is buggier than Florida and Texas combined! Seriously!

In the first picture, you see a lot of my kitchen. The ants in question were near the mixer (covered in Texas Cloth) and yes that is 27 degrees C on the fan (aka Air conditioner). The second picture is the shelves where behind them – and in all the bins had sugar ants in them. Thank GOODNESS we keep everything in containers (thank you Tupperware) and bags (ziploc).

But let me tell you about the small success… After a brief moment or ten of freaking out at the ants covering the bagel I needed to cut and toast… I cleaned it all up, he helped when he came down! We sprayed & wiped the bins AND powdered outside on the terrace! Yes, after all this…After I got hubs out on time, I sat down with my coffee and thought “someone, somewhere would love to be alive killing ants!”

Now listen, it’s not glamorous. But – staying positive is everything!

Other Small Successes:

  • making headway on PTSA paperwork.
  • continuing to set boundaries with manipulative people.
  • I am proud that my attitude is finally getting better thanks to our Loving Father’s continual correction!
  • starting to set attainable goals and write again!

Yay! Happy Thursday all! Tell me about your small successes!

Mark 16:9-15 Gospel Reflection

Dear Ones,

I hope this post finds you well. I’m having trouble finding my blogging voice during this Pandemic. LOL I mean – Pretend I know what day it is… and pretend today is April 18th? Sigh.

Today is day 54 of quarantine for me. I’ve lost track of days, my brain and many other things. Lol sigh. I need to give an update on how we are doing and I will soon.

For now though, please check out my Gospel Reflection over at Catholicmom.com from Yesterday, April 18th. LOL

It’s one of my favorite stories about Jesus rebuking the Apostles who didn’t know who he was.

Here is a A little snippet of my post:

And as I bow my head in shame, it occurs to me…how many times has God called on me, and I did not hear Him? How many times has God tried to teach me a lesson that I did not learn the first time? How many times has God tried to comfort you and you did know Him? 

God is with us in every flower, friend, sunset, stranger’s smile, in every sweet memory. He is with us. He will never leave us, even if we don’t see Him. God always keeps His word.

I hope you like the post. I really love sharing my love for the Gospels. Also – and funny enough, I’ve been posting videos updates on Monday. It helps my family and friends at home to see that I am ok. Only this week, I posted it on Wednesday. I am telling you my brain is clueless of what day it is. Sigh. I do mention the Gospel in Luke, where Jesus was walking with the two Apostles on the way to Emmaus, and they had no idea who He was. Sigh. So much like our humanity. Anyway – I do share my videos on my blog page on FB. Here is this week’s update/video.

I am off to bed because it’s late in Italy. I will be back to blab your heads off soon.
I promise you I have lots of ideas.

Love and Hugs to all.
