Going South

March 5, 2009 at 7:51 am 2 comments

My dad’s shoulder surgery was last Friday.  I’ve called and checked on him a few times and will be spending the night there in BG and taking him to the doctor this week in Nash. to see how things went and potentially start some rehab.

He’s still needing pain meds, so I really didn’t want him driving.

We’ll see how I drive down south!

Dori may have to come looking for me–she doesn’t know it yet, but she may be oncall for my “on*star”!  😀  I need to do some map-questing!  I looke forward to the time with my dad…even though I have to be driving him, and he is the expert driver, as most Dad’s are!

    (1) I will be on call if your onstar fails you, my friend!!

    (2) How can you be this close next week and us not at least give each other a hug?? If you think you have a few minutes, I can meet you anywhere…anytime! Would be overwhelmed at the chance!

    I’ll be praying!!

    Blessings, friend!

    I was waiting to hear about his surgery. I had been keeping Dad informed. Hope all goes well with rehab.

    I’m not sure if you know, but our Aunt Carol-Jean passed away. Just thought I’d pass that along.

    Sounds like you need a GPS in your car!:) Maybe navigating Nashville won’t be too bad.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

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)

"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
