Today, I felt like someone had pulled the plug on my energy.  Wow.  Several things I wanted to do, but just couldn’t get my mojo kicked into gear.  Oh well.

Working on my 20 year reunion, locating people.  Wow.  20 years!  Perhaps it is just the thought of being so old that is wearing me out.

Survived a meeting.  It’s a wonder they put up with someone so young.  Anyway, survived that.

Got some more divided page protectors in the mail for my 12X12 scrapbooks.  Making my organizing go much easier…seeing piles reduce.  Yay!

Laundry is somewhat under control for the week, need to run whites.

Need to vacuum and mop.  Blek!

Expecting a visit from my cousin tomorrow.  Very excited about that.

I’ve been keeping a daily log of things I’ve accomplished the last few days.  Seems to help me realize the days have purpose and that I’m not just “doing nothing”.  Easy to feel that way sometimes, especially with so much “un-done” even though I’m here all day!

Eat the elephant, one bite at a time!

Just a random post of normal stuff.

    I love that you’re making a list of things you’re accomplishing every day! We should ALL do that! Sometimes it feels like we’re doing such ordinary, seemingly mundane things, never accomplishing anything of value. I’m sure that helps your perspective at least! Good for you!

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
