Today was a great day on a field trip with all three to a dairy farm.  I learned A LOT.  Very interesting. 

Current:  headache, soccer practice for Goldi, can’t find my camera disk and they are telling me it’s “obsolete” at Wal*Mart!  WHAT?!  I bought it less than five years ago.    Pray I find that little piece of plastic before graduation day (tomorrow!)  I’ve prayed, I’ve searched…little hope here.  Also, still need to hem those pants!

This is very entertaining, I know.  Just drop in anytime for that mind-numbing entertainment buzz you’ve all come to know and expect!  😀

    i lost the charger to my beautiful blue sony cybershot camera and then was told it was obsolete and I’l have to buy a whole new camera! crazy! then somehow it unexpectedly showed up–perhaps via God’s help? Now we’re also stressing about pants’ hems–Grandma wonderfully hemmed the pants but then they’re woefully too short!! so we’re stressin’, and it’s 10:03 pm. . .!

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
