Boy Wonder went down again today at church…our stomach lining is just so raw I think anything hitting it is killing us.  I took a Nexium and three tums today and I’m still burning.  Chicken broth again today for me and Goldy.  Poor Red has had so much soup, if he does get sick, he’ll already be sick to death of it!

Her winter Sunday shoes don’t fit, Red literally has several holes in the front of his tennis shoes…so we MUST go shoe shopping today while they can try on shoes.  I’m driving with two kids, and two of us are semi-well.  I’m not looking forward to the venture.  Pray for God’s grace for our little outting, for much to get done, and smiles to come from somewhere!

It seems to me Boy Wonder has had some kind of major upset just about every Christmas Banquet I can remember.  “Tis the Season” for our household and the stomach bugs, I suppose, and him in particular!

Whew!  If  you’ve got a bug today…you are on my heart!  I know of several of you already.  Remember:  “Tidings of COMFORT and joy.”   When you don’t have the joy…receive the comfort until you get it! When you get it…share it!

    Um… don’t mean to sound rude, but if you guys are still feeling so bad, maybe you shouldn’t be out spreading Christmas cheer? 😉

    I do hope you all feel better soon!

    Just stomach acid heartburn problems. Carmen and I weren’t contagious, just had sore stomach from heartburn problems, as I said. We don’t have fevers and haven’t had diarrhea or haven’t thrown up for 48 hours.

    David had been symptom free for 36 hours. We are just doing to have to watch acidic foods. He made the mistake of having McDonalds sausage…his stomach is just going to be raw for a while…that virus just has a high acid element and eats the lining of the stomach, they say.

    I do hate it when contagious people go out and get my kids sick…I think we’d been in from October to about March if I wanted until we were all five totally 100%. A peril of my life I’ve learned! But, I do have to fuss about it somewhere!

    Geez, you guys seem to keep exchanging the same bug. Was talking to your hubbie today and he says he and Red have escaped the bug so far. We’ve been fortunate here too and I pray that we will continue – especially since the boys are in finals this week. I hope this week will be better.

    We’ve been pretty lucky avoiding the stomach bug here too. We all have the sinus issues going on though. I’ve worked literally all weekend long at the hospital feeling absolutely miserable!!! Five hours of sleep and 13 cases on my call weekend are not making me a happy camper! 😦 Feel better 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
