It Moves Me

There is the traditional “scrapbooking”, and then…there is [UPDATE:  Theresa says you can copy and paste it into your browser to get it to work.  Thanks Theresa!!] It is real.  It captures moments, emotions, history, pride, celebration.  I totally dig it.  It’s not fancy, it’s simple.

That’s how I want to do it. I look for inspiration to show me how.  I hope I communicate that kind of love for my kids in the little things they enjoy NOW.  Today.  In the everyday living.  Not keeping “every little thing”, but keeping the things they treasure that communicate pride to them.  Importance.  To treasure what they treasure and celebrate with them along the way.  So many times, I catch myself in “end of summer” stress mode.  I long for that kind of celebratory refreshing.  Soon!

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
