Out of the Box

Life is good.

I bought a t-shirt with this on the back and front last weekend. 
It’s a well-worn looking shirt with this message on the front and back.
I heart my new tshirt: clearance, Hibbits, $5.00. 
This is a big deal for me.  I normally don’t buy something that already looks worn…it goes against the grain of all that is within me. 
But, I love my new well-worn “life is good.” t*shirt. 
I’m getting out of my box, peoples.

Oh, theres’s a “Life is Good”  website!  Okay, so I could seriously love about half of these tees, and I don’t normally love tshirts!  Wow…I just keep changing.  So versatile.  So flexible. 

Oh, I kid.

What have you bought or tried lately that takes you “out of your box” (keep it clean people).  (:D  Who am I talking to here?  I don’t know!  But, it is the internet!)

    Haven’t really bought anything recently that is “out of my box.” But have had a “Life is good” t-shirt since high school. I have loved it since I got it and it is the shirt I go for when I am feeling down. Something about wearing a shirt that says “Life is good” just puts a smile on my face. 🙂

    Well, I would love to say an exercise ball but I haven’t… although thinking about it. 😉

    I bought high waisted pants. Well, they aren’t “high” but they do go up to my belly button and I haven’t worn pants that high since I was in elementary school. It’s so nice to not worry about showing anything, though!

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
