I’m getting SO excited about getting to the Creative Keepsakes Convention tomorrow in Louisville.  I’m taking my ten year old daughter with me.  She went last with me when she was about seven and LOVED it.  She’s been asking me to “see if you can find another one of those scrapbooking days we can go to on a mother-daughter date again soon?” for several years and the timing just never worked!

We’ll head out EARLY tomorrow.

Today, I scrubbed, and do mean SCRUBBED the van totally clean, JUST IN CASE we need to take it.  My only concern is that Mrs. Polly might slide right out it’s so clean!  😀

We have some sugar snacks, I’m hoping to get some pumpkin chocolate chip bread for a quick breakfast in the morning, otherwise, we’ll do cereal, and some light little snacks for her to get us til lunch.

I also want a 12X12 bag in case I buy some paper!  I have a bag I got free when I got my CK magazine subscription at the last conference…I like to put a piece of cardboard in there to keep the paper from wrinkling!

I was hoping to get us registered for some classes this week, but alas, registration was closed.  We may or may not get into some open classes.  I usually learn a lot just by looking at the ventors different projects anyway.

Oh!  I’m so excited!  It’s great to have a day to GET AWAY!  I don’t think I’ve been out of town for a “non-necessary” trip since…okay, I can’t even remember…well before the ice storm.  WAY TOO LONG!

WOW!  I’m so excited that Upward soccer doesn’t start for a week!  I get to go!!!

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
