“Lord…” {when that’s all you pray}

A little less haze every day..still a lot of eye fatigue.  I slept a good 12 hours yesterday.  Wore darkening shield all day.  Computer screen still hurts…still typing w my eyes closed.

Woke at 4 am in a lot of pain.  Better this AM, but I took a load of pain meds.  Apparently today is the last possible bad day if all goes well.

I’ve kept my bar and sink clean for three days…I think that’s a record.  When there’s nothing else to do, it sure makes me feel great.  Cleaned up my painting supply area that was strolled across the end of the kitchen to an out of the way place yesterday.  The kids shoe closet is cleaned and organized.  Still picking at cleaning my closet some.  Pulled out some chairs from the barn (Hub wasn’t happy about that, but I pulled them on the kid’s wagon, so I didn’t strain).

My eyes hurt.  I’m a little tired of hearing myself say that. It’s not an intense pain, it is an irritating, about to claw this contact bandage out sort of pain.  It’s that feeling of having driven all night with your contacts in, feeling like you can’t keep them open for one more minuts.  Only I’ve just slept for SO long and have woken to feel that way again.  UGH.  I Laid in the floor on all fours last night and prayed, “Lord…”  Sometimes, there are just no more meaningful words.

“continue to strive for the goal…”

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
