What a Day

Yesterday and today were hard days.  I won’t lie to you.  Hormones were wacky, tears flowed watching home improvement shows (nothing related), and I ate a few Doritos. 

I didn’t work out, get the laundry done, or wear my attitude bracelet. 

There are some days a girl just needs to decompress and these were my two days.

Tonight redeemed the day somewhat, however.  I took some little ones out on the four wheeler and tents were then built all across my living room.  Nothing like a pretend campout to lift your spirits.

Then, my mom stopped by and invited us to go with her, and my Aunt/Uncle to see “Anne of Green Gables” live.  If you have an opportunity to go see that this weekend  at the theatre or next with girls old enough to follow the story, DO SO.  Note:  they show the full story, so it was about 2 and a half hours long, so I wouldn’t do it with the very young.  But, SO worth it if you’ve ever read the books, or read them to young girls!  The acting was out of this world, dead on, on target.  Oooh!  They were GOOD!  Every last one of them.   A must see.  Very well worth it.

Tomorrow, a full day.  Must get some shut eye!

    Thanks so much for letting Meg come to play! She was absolutely worn out when she got home. She fell asleep on the couch now long after 🙂 That’s rare.

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
