A Day in Blogland

February 14, 2008 at 3:12 pm 1 comment

Today, I have been in blogland.  It has been nice.  Ya’ll could post a little more. 

I do plan to tackle all my laundry, just as soon as I eat this whole pack of stale, dry, and hard Now and Later’s.  I haven’t gotten any Valentine’s candy just yet and I’m trying to stay out of the kid’s…working very hard at it.  And, no, you don’t need to bring me any, as sweet as that is ;).  I just need to learn some self-control.

The www.whatyadoin.wordpress.com blog has been a lot of fun.  If you want to be added back as an author, give me a holler.  If you aren’t posting regularly, I removed you.  I don’t want anyone to feel spammed by increased  WordPress dashboard traffic it generates.  That element doesn’t distract me, but it may some.

Just updated my blogroll here with some new locals popping up.  Also cleaned up my bloglines subscription list some.  

The kids no longer like mine or their sidebar pics, so I need to tackle that job also.  

Ah, this week.  The card I got hubby was SO perfect, the store bought one.  I love that I’ve given him two already and he hasn’t gotten mine yet.  It feels good to be ahead for a few minutes.  It said how much I LOVE the everyday with him.  The “doing of the family thing”.  You know what?  I don’t mind that there is ice everywhere, and flu, and viruses in my house (probably because I don’t have them yet).  I just LOVE The Family Thing.  I love doing it.  I love these ages.  I love the people God gave me to do that Thing with.  I hope I can be even better at it.  More patience.  More kindness.  More gentleness.  More order. 

But, mainly, that we just keep doing it.  TOGETHER.

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

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. 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.
