We have had company Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Today, we prepared for Father’s Day lunch and attended a beautiful wedding, then made a visitation at the funeral home. 

I told The Hub, “Hub, I think this is the first time I’ve ever gone to the funeral home in a bright pink dress.” 

“I’d say so.” he said.


Eye update:  I could see the slide show at the wedding!  I am reading the screen a bit better today, the double print seems better on my right eye.  Now, still just some blur to clear up between the two eyes.  I feel like that “Hmmm, it might be time to go to the eye doctor, things just aren’t quite as crisp” stage.  You can tolerate it, but you know it’s time for “the tweak” that makes it magic.

My, how I LOVE it when things suddenly seem even a little bit better! 

I woke today not needing to put lubrication drops in my eyes–come to think of it, I really didn’t need them either!  Today was the first day I woke up and thought, “Wow, I’m seeing.”  Not, “Whew, this is still going to be another ‘waiting it out’; kind of a day.”  Yeah!

I’m down to two steriod drops a day, then just lubrication drops as needed…and you know what?  I’m not needing them!  I hope it does just keep getting better!

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
