Climbing Back Up-Hill

5:50 this AM…my kids had a grand scheme to cook me breakfast in bed to cheer me up before Dad left for work.  I look pretty sleeped-over in this pic, but it’s worth the looks on their faces.

They scrambled the eggs alone on the gas stove–forgot the non-stick spray, poured everything back out of the pan, they said, and started over after wiping out the pan.

Bacon, OJ, buttered toast, and a rose…

Hub said they could hardly get to sleep last night for planning it out.

I love my kids…though they nearly drove me batty yesterday after an extremely long day with the eye issue.  Even their “fun” was annoying to listen to when it involved squealing and yelping.  They had an energy level of 10+ and mine was trying to get to about a 4.

I was almost too tired to eat the breakfast, but AHhhhhh.  The LOVE.

I ate a bit, then they devoured the rest.  IT WAS really good.  The best breakfast I’ve ever had, I’m sure.

I went back to sleep and after a few hours of no pain…my spirits are up.

My vision is still blurry today, but much better in my right eye.  I can see the computer screen at a normal font today, though it’s still not quite there.  My left eye is holding things back some.

I’m nervous about getting the contacts out tomorrow and wonder if I’m ready.  I don’t know that I can handle the graininess of yesterday.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find I still need one on the left.

Hopefully we are on the up-swing.

The overcast morning helped SO much.  Thanks, Lord.

At noon today, a family with kids similar in age came and got all three for the afternoon.  I’m in hog heaven at the moment. Sweet mercy, God is good.

I just HAVE to go sit in the sun for ten or fifteen minutes, even if I have to cover my head with a pillow case!  I may even scoop some leaves out of the pool for The Hub while I’m at it.

Kim:  This is for you…I added some sequins yesterday.  HAS to be better with sequins!

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
