Mother’s Day Weekend, Part A

Okay, so a few pics are sideways…then again, I was sideways a few times myself!

*The Park with Red for his field trip–Friday

*Airfield, Saturday–Saturday  (the sideways one with two boys is the plane I flew in with them).

Is that my hair, that straight?  Yup…straight iron.  Today was not a good hair day, however.  I let it dry naturally and could not correct that later.  Lesson learned.  I was swiping my bangs out of my eyes all morning after that mistake.

    Oh the pictures are lovely! Looks like sooooo much fun. Btw, Goldie is starting to look like her dad! I always saw a striking resemblance between you two but my, in that picture of her in the cockpit, she looks just like her dad!

    So glad you had the opportunity to spend time as a family. What a wonderful Mother’s Day blessing 🙂 Hopefully you had or will have the opportunity to rest from all the busyness of this weekend. Love ya!

    So you were part of all those airplanes Sat. We were wondering what was going on…we were thinking maybe lessons.

    I saw that plane flying around. I don’t really care for low-wings because you can’t see down very well, but how awesome to have the opportunity for free flights! I wish I had been able to take Haley but I’m not very trusting of pilots I don’t know. hee hee My Dad has lost several pilot friends to crashes and now I’m a bit gun shy. 😦

    Boy Wonder actually flew a lot of the flight…how’s that for trusting pilots?

    The pilots were all well-respected. The one we flew with actually owned his own airport. I was totally comfortable. We only flew 20 minutes.

    Looks like a fun day. My husband has a small plane and we love to go flying…unless it’s windy — whoa —

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
