I got a couple photos someone took of Mom and she looked good.  Everything looks dry and dusty.  I’m not sure that I’m supposed to post photos on the web, or that that would be wise, but if friends would like them, just email me and ask to see where she is.

I spoke with her today about bills and issues and the sheets she needs me to send.  She said it is very cool in the morning and again in the evening.  She was wearing a long sleeved shirt.  She said they need a hooded jacket because of the wind in the evening.  If Larry isn’t around to pick her up in his company truck, she walks about a mile to go to sleep in the evening.  She is still waiting on her computer to arrive, her work number and other details.  She is still in training and observation right now.  They are running very behind on getting them some needed paperwork this week, so the next two days may be even longer than 12 hour shifts to get caught up.

I told her Goldy said “She didn’t fix her hair.” She replied that they have to wear company hats everywhere they go outside, so it gets all smushed by the end of the day.

She told me cousin Aaron knocked his two front teeth and may have to have one or both pulled?  Oh my.

She said that the chapel service was nice.  It was led by an Arm*y chapla*in.  They had a band, and they knew some of the praise songs.  They had a screen for the words.  I was glad she had a nice time.  As dry and colorless as it looks, I’m sure songs are a refreshment to hear.

She sounded as good as one can sitting in on office for 12 hours a day!

I forgot to ask for her specific address we had so much business to discuss today, but I can send you Larry’s work address where she got my mail today.  A personal letter took about two weeks to get to her, but her mails been held up, hopefully they will arrive faster now, but who knows?  Letters/cards there just take one regular stamp.  Let me know if you’d like her address and I’ll be getting that out.

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
