This morning, Daisy woke us at 5AM and would NOT stop barking.

We slept in late.  

I stepped out to the porch to let her out, and…


realized there was something going on worth barking about!

Got all three kids up, and finally, at 7:15, school was closed.  Many kids had to be returned from the buses by then.  Our county seems the last one called every time this year…I guess we are the last to get snowed on?  😀


Boy Wonder is sad, his final team meet and awards banquet was the afternoon.  I’m sorry it’s cancelled, but personally grateful for a change of pace after a “way busy” week!

    Wow…it looks like your neck of the woods got more than ours…isn’t that strange??? I mean it’s not like we live all that far from each other. It didn’t start snowing until around 6:30 here and never really did cover the ground. It only covered the roads.

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
