My Birthday–A Good Day

September 2, 2008 at 5:49 pm 7 comments

Thanks for all the sweet birthday wishes.  I like to post pics because at some point I’ll have fun going back a few years and see what I did on my birthdays…I love pics with me and my kids for sure!  I don’t get many of those where they are all cooperative–birthday shots seem to be the best bet!

Last night, we went to Applebee’s and on a family trip Bowling.  The hub got someone to cover for him at work for a few hours!  Yeah!  The kid’s are getting old enough to get a little frustrated learning to bowl, but it’s good for them to learn to keep trying.  And, the second game when they gave in to the bumper guards went MUCH better!  I tied The Hub the first game!  We won’t discuss the second.

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
