Everyone felt fine all day.  I think Dad taking the kids for their weekly McDonalds breakfast proved too much for recovering stomachs is all.  We are all still on the re-entry foods until stomach linings heal back.  The acid content in that bug is crazy.   I opted out and ate my Lucky Charms and had another can of Chicken Soup for lunch.  I tried pizza last night and ugh…I think that’s why I had a hard time with heartburn.  But, you long for something with flavor after all that broth.

We went out today and had bland foods and the younger two did great.  They got some shoes and we got items needed to mail to Mamaw to try to get a few things there on time for Christmas.  It will still be an effort.  It’s hard to know what someone in her situation would need or want or have time for!

It was wonderful tonight at the church concert to sit as a family and laugh and see how much the kid’s are growing in confidence.  Goldy usually never volunteers to be in front and wearing her new little heels (all we could find in a six and a half!) she had two opportunities to be in front of a crowd tonight and she just did great.  I could not have talked her into that if I’d tried.  What a sport.

The boys all sat and did what boys do during caroling events…whispering and mimicked the singer.  At one point the speaker was telling a joke about S*tan in the room and Red yelled out something like “Yikes!”  I didn’t know where it came from, but we all laughed.

We got the tree brought in from the barn and put up tonight when we got home.  We got lights on it, and it’s ready for decorating!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I got the first of my cards out today and have several more to tackle.   I want to make a couple homemade things to try to send to my mom.

Thanks to those of you who are going out of your way to add smiles and cheer to my life this season…it means the world.

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
