This week my darling husband gave me a virus he fought all week last week.  The main symptom is feeling like you’ve been beat up by a 2X4 for several days.  To. A. Pulp!

A sweet friend brought me homemade chocolate chip cookies to sustain my life.  I will never forget it for as long as I live!

I’m getting caught up…slowly!

Tomorrow, the kids Upward games, and celebrating my man’s birthday!  We hope to go see the new Jackie Chan movie “Spy Next Door”.

    Oh shoot….I had hoped that I would come over and find my friend doing just wonderful!!!

    I have thought of you one thousand times in the past few days and realized that at some point we have disconnected. I don’t like that because I really like you and have missed you terribly!

    Let’s get caught up soon!

    Blessings, friend…

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
