Just Summer…

Today is the first day since school has let out we have not had overnight house guests of the wee sort.  I’m catching up on some cleaning of cabinets, straightening, and cleaning the oven.  I also printed off photos of the kid’s Upward season late last night, cropped and placed those this morning to be taped later…journaling and title will have to be added.  I can only do part of a page at a time like that, but enjoy taking “the next step” when I get tired working and need to sit down a minute.

I painted some areas of the back porch that needed it yesterday before the rain set in.  We figure the seed washed out of the garden and we will have to replant.  The pool is close to balanced now, but still needs another test and perhaps some flocculant, it’s still not see-through clear.

On to the tasks of today!  What are you up to?  I want to see “Up” soon…is it out yet?

    Worked at a summer camp the first two days of the week, worked at my part-time summer job all day yesterday and today. Going to see “Up” tonight in lieu of the fair (too much rain today).

ME: “MAGGIE”

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)
