Tuesday Progress

I feel like writing again today.

Chores for Monday were caught up.  Tuesday, I need to finish some irritating jobs (socks still in the living room unmatched after a week of cycling laundry), cleaning out the van (full of stuff I’ve been trying to return/drop-off for a week, items in the garage that need to be itemize before I give them away, vacuuming in the kids “territory” (has anyone learned to spell vacuum correctly yet every time, spell-check still hits me every time!)

Ran Podrunner IntervalWeek 3, day 3 today.  My right shin flared, but not a shin splint.  Both lower legs are strengthening, I felt that most today.  Light mist.  Good workout.  I don’t like how the series ends in a walk and then goes to a cool down on Week 3.  I usually add a 60 second run, then walk out the rest of the cool-down.

Will probably try to run extra days this week to prepare for the 5 minute run segments next week.  The thought of it intimidates me.  Only three days are required, with a recommended break day in between.  I just hate the off days!  Still mulling the healthiest way to handle off days.  May use the same music and do step or something like that.

The Love Dare book is going pretty well.  We both mutually agreed to not do one of the assignments.  We didn’t want to write down things we didn’t like about each other and burn it.  We are both at a place of taking negative thoughts to the cross as they occur, so making a list would be dredging up what had already been cast away.  If we have regular irritations, we try to deal with them, and already had an assignment on the top 3 last week…that was enough of that to work on for now to deal with more negative lists.  The positive directions impact us the most and are lending a freshness, the servanthood, beating one another to tasks, getting up from rest times to assist the other unexpectedly.  We’ve been beating one another to make up the bed all week.  It makes me smile.

I don’t mind doing it, but just the change of pace is sweet.

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
