Got some much needed sleep last night…finally got up and grabbed my new (and first) iPod.  The music helped ease my mind to sleep.

Watching my nephew this weekend while my SIL goes to her grandmother’s funeral.  Praying for her…she’s giving a eulogy in an hour.

Cleaning up a lot of crumbs from people snacking.  Doing a lot of dishes…thank God for my dishwasher.  It’s getting run 2-3 times a day right now.

Needing to fold some laundry, but content to dig underwear and socks out of the basket for now.

Playing with some scrapbooking tools family members loved me with this year.

I hope you are well.  I miss friends…keep me posted as to your happenings!

    I’m jealous that you are scrapbooking. I won’t let myself until the laundry is caught up. Maybe tomorrow.

    So glad you got some sleep – you sure need some rest. These holidays are wonderful and loved and enjoyed…. but they are so hard on our bodies – especially those bodies who think they need to DO everything and bless everyone!

    Praying for you SIL as well, even if I’m a day late. It’s Monday now. Back to work today. Planning a quiet evening, tonight though. Knitting and relaxing. Yes… those two DO go in the same sentence! 🙂

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
