“Awm Fawt”

July 25, 2008 at 11:34 pm 1 comment

  • Flash just learned to do an “awm fawt”, as he says it. Goldilocks then showed him how to set it to song.  My kids have learned many meaningful, life-sustaining skills.
  • My floating kitchen tile was delivered by semi.
  • I had to help unload it at the pick up point.
  • 25 pounds a box..50 boxes, 50 trips in and out of the van.
  • Add 2 children to that scene and a semi driver.
  • The Hub got there after about 30, none to early.
  • I was sweaty.
  • I think we are going to like the tile.
  • Tonight, we are ripping out flooring and applying leveler and taking off quarter round.  We cut out one column and are contemplating a second.  (Lord, help…I have NO idea).  I’m thinking out with it…it will give me more flexibility with lighting placement, which needs to move.  The table can’t center under the light anyway, which drives me a little insane…I can’t afford that.
  • I will be repainting/recaulking the just-painted trim.
  • I feel very tired in every way, but it’s been a good couple days.  I need a fresh “word”.
  • I could also use chocolate.  I ate squash and zucchini steamed tender-crisp in salsa with one splenda instead.
  • I also drank three cups of coffee today, just because a girl needs a treat.
  • I am more full, but not yet fooled.  Chocolate is like that, you know.
  • But, I am strong.
  • Not really.

    It took me a moment to recognize the terminology on item #1. I sooo remember those days. Just rest assured, there is more to come. Tell Red congrats on the new accomplishment.

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
