Life with 5…FIVE…five… Kids {I’m not that good a woman}

babies1.jpgToday, I am watching my two nephews.  I love hearing “Aunt” come out of their little red lips.

At the same time, it serves as a wonderful reminder to never miss a birth control pill or regret my babies growing up too awful much. 

More power to those of you still in the baby zone!

I forbid my kids to get sick at school today, or need meds at school today.  It just would not be convenient. 

They can’t wait to get home to play with their cousins!  These are my Navy brother’s kids…so we haven’t gotten to see them nearly enough!  I’m standing in for Mom today.

 Thanks for your comments on the last post…great thoughts…keep them coming!

    I’m laughing… I had 4, but they were all small at the same time. Makes life easier. Once you get out of the “baby” stage w/ kids, having them over sure makes a huge difference. It also helps having one older to watch and help take care of….
    How long to get the pleasure of this extra experience?

    Thanks baby girl. Looks like you did a great job. I’m sure I will hear alot about Aunt “Maggie” ….tomorrow, and all the fun they had. I had a great time at the layover at the Cincinnati airport for 4 hrs with my sisters and my nephew who I hadn’t seen in 5 years( he is in the Air Force,going back to Germany), Glad you could fill in for me. xoxoxo

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
