Today, I slept until 9AM.  It was great!  I’m starting to feel human again!  We played all day with Christmas toys and had a blast.  I could use a few like this!  The kids want to return a Christmas gift this week…shopping with three is always an adventure!

Talked to Mom the last few days…she is good, things have calmed.  She asks for prayer for New Year’s.

The Hub had to return to work today, and the night is very late getting caught up from time off.  We are on very different schedules right now…I hate that “out of synch” feeling.  I wish he could vacation with us a few days.

Upward BBall practices start this week.  The kids are excited.

Loving my first iPod…it’s helping me get to sleep at night!  Thank ya, Lord!

Did you know that 4th generation iPods don’t work with many iPod docking stations?  What a pain!  I’ll have to research that this week.  I’d love for my station to charge the little guy!  I don’t know if there are downloads.

Enjoying my craft room today…made an apron with Goldilocks out of an old dress she found…she discovered the project and asked if I’d assist.  Didn’t take too long, except for the button applique…about nine buttons had to be sewn on for that…I did use the machine, but broke two buttons doing the shortcut.  Will try to post a photo of that when we finish (still have to buy ribbon to tie it around her waist).

The Wii is a big hit…and a bow and arrow, and a drawing easel. (That doesn’t look spelled right, but the checker isn’t correcting me!)

Well, it’s late and I’m ready for some routine to return, so I’m hitting the hay!  I hope your holiday is continuing to be blessed.

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
