1.  THANKS:  The comments are great on today’s early post.  Keep them coming.   And…yeah, I’ve heard it all.   I worked in financial counseling for a while, in the city, among the student, young worker, young married population.   If you will be paying off credit cards for longer than your current mortgage and are only paying minimum payments, struggling to do that…I’m sad for your plight, but I’m not surprised.  It’s too common, and you can tackle it with ferocious tenacity and be done with it.  Do it! 

The PM spell-checked issue awaits you below.  Thanks for the patience of early readers….tis my new habit.  Blog AM, edit PM.  Sorry for that for you faithful ones.  Click to Read

2.  BLOGROLL:  I know I need to update my blogroll and that many of you do not appear yet.   Reality with Maggie:  that’s a once a quarter job, like dusting.  I subscribe to you local gals through my subscriptions at bloglines, and I’m very proud of you.  I love you. You rock my world right now.  You’re getting it!  Stay real.  I’ll get to it.  SOON!  Just as soon as I finish my Christmas cards.  {Gulp}.  

3.  USED GIFTS?  I’m hearing it now:  “Maggie, creative gift ideas…great.  But, used?  {Yeesh}.  You are bordering on tacky.  What on earth do you mean?”  I’ll get to some of those soon.  Very soon.  Thanks for asking.  

4.  THE TRUTH ABOUT #3:  Actually, no one asked!   But you KNOW you want to know.  Stay tuned…

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
