Several of you had blog comment questions.  I haven’t had time to email you, but I did respond to your comment on the blog…just check your comment.  Home life has me kickin’ today or I’d email them all to you.  Goldilocks still has a fever over 101, and The Hub still feels rough with another day of the Flu.

To answer many of you, yes, Larry flew in yesterday and will be home for two weeks.  He is testing to keep accreditation up.  He’s got severe jet lag issues at the moment, so he’s napping, testing, napping, testing.

We plan to do Christmas on Saturday, after which point, I’ll need to get down my Christmas decorations.  Once we hit Valentines day, the kids and Hub recommended we just add hearts. 

I’ve been cranky today…that seems to go with whatever virus Goldilocks has…severe moods swings, temp, fatigue, and cough.  I’ve been pretty tired myself.  Whether just tired of us all being stuck at home or getting something, I can’t tell. We are all just snippy, or maybe it’s just me.  Everyone is currently accusing the other of bad breath, and the kids were snippy all morning.  I had to put them all in time out to get a shower and not fear someone being physically injured.  I was going to leave the boys home while I took my daughter to the doc, but again, feared for them injuring one another and had to take them along. 

While at Rite Aid stocking up on meds for her, I bought some “cheer me up” items for being quarantined again with the fam:  very cool color coded index cards with plastic divider and jump rings.  I have dreams of being organized, and index cards seem to do it for me.  I also bought half cut colored coded index cards.  They are just so happy.  I like to use the pocket planner and color coded cards help.  I’m not a nerd, I just like color, and lists.  DIY Planner tools, per my 2008 goal list (sidebar).  Oh yes, I’m soarin’ into the goals today.  Me and my Krispy Kreme doughnuts (only because the children may get sick and need some fast calories and fat grams…comfort food is important from a mother.  I ate two, just to be sure they were…you know, fresh.  Only the best).

Also, I bought cuticle care items.  My cuticles are a mess.  Buy one product, get one free.  There you go.  The heavens were obviously in favor of my nail-care.

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
