Danielle Bean encourages mothers to encourage each other. Here are my great achievements:
1. I finished Kolbe's prayer shelf. He's wanted this for ages.
2. As part of the "Forty Bags for Forty Days" campaign, I pitched Don't Break the Ice. Two minutes of set up followed by 30 seconds of fun and three days of finding ice cubes hidden under furniture. Not quite as bad as Kerplunk which was both a mess and a choking hazard. Good riddance, but, as Danielle would say, don't tell the kids.
3. I burned 13 years worth of blessed palms. They were hanging off of half the pictures in the house. While chatting with our pastor, I asked if they were blessed (they are) and how to get rid of them as well as all the rosaries the Archbishop of Northern Alaska sends to us. You burn or bury blessed objects, but I was assured that the free rosaries can be tossed.
