Wednesday: April Fool’s Day!

April 1, 2009 at 9:39 am 4 comments

Life: enjoying the rhythm and balance of priorities right now.  Enjoying knowing there are times for work and times for play.  Enjoying the freedom from some generalized order.  Now, for the cleaning!

Spirituality: sensing a clarity and joy, new dreams.

Spring Break:  just back from Nashville.  Great time…will share as soon as photos finish uploading!

Scrapbooking: enjoying new things, watercolors, cards, new directions, fast projects.  Need to get back to finishing some projects I’ve put on hold…mainly, the kid’s school years books!  Hoping to generate some income from the things I enjoy about it…mainly just because I’d love to do work I love doing if I can.  We’ll see.

Furniture: Looking at options for tables.  Namely, I need about six occasional tables, for beginners.  I know, it’s nuts.  Hoping to incorporate my scrapbooks into one of them in some sort of “Pottery Barn” sort of fashion.

House: on top of “de-cluttering” in some zones, but need to get my kid’s on others.  Ready to CLEAN!  Ready for a sense of freshness!

Health: My Wii Fit age is 44.  The kids pooled their all “A” money from three different sources, and their Valentine gift money they were saving to get the Wii Fit.  We are all enjoying that!

Family: Mom is returning to the states!  Yeah!  I missed her emails due to being on Spring Break, but we’ll have things ready for her when she returns.

    Your WiiFit age is 44??? Come on, mine was lower than that – and I KNOW you’re in better shape than me. What’d you do, fall down or something????? 🙂
    I’ve been waiting for pix from Saturday. I had to back out Saturday morning when an employee called in sick. As it turned out, I could have still gone, oh well……..
    Excited to hear your mom is coming home!!!!!
    Note: We miss our hair stylist!

    You are so amazing to me!!!! It’s amazing how much you balance at a time and with such grace and patience. I’m glad you’re having fun too and yay for Mom coming back 🙂 Love you Sis XO

    I can’t believe your fit age is 44. Mine is way better than than and just think about the shape that I’m in! You need to try again! One day I had a sneezing fit during the balance test. It told me I was 58!

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
