warm fleece jammies




Many of you know that our son was in the hospital for 15 days in November for complications resulting from Neutropenia (low blood counts). This one really kicked his buns good. He hung in there with God's grace and presence and we were overjoyed when we finally brought him home. He lost all his hair this time and the weather being cold and wintry now, caused a cold head at night and he had trouble getting warm in the house, so he asked me for some warm jammies. My friend Patty (she and Karl are dear friends and have been super supportive during this whole ordeal and we are REALLY thankful for them) told us that 'uncle karl' knew all about cold heads at night. Before she even knew our plight fully she was making plans for warm fuzzies!! God answered B's simple little prayer. He is nice and cozy warm now. Thanks Patty, for your fuzzy, loving touch. You blessed this snugly little boy tremendously!

Speaking of snuggling...I just love this shot of me and B's feet while snuggling after he got home. :)

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

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.
