Magnanimously homeschooling, worshiping, creating.......

Join us on a journey of faith, healing, learning to live with part of our hearts missing, and recovery, as our family rebuilds our lives, after our son's long battle with cancer....and his eventual rise on eagle's wings into Heaven...victory is his...he is serving the King!!!

still here/ getting older

I am still here in case you were wondering! We have been so busy that my head is spinning in addition to a virus running through, taking it's time with us, but most especially with me. I am having prolonged fatigue. Now it is in my chest. It makes it hard to get any fun extras in like this blogging. Don't worry, we are making all the appropriate soups and smoothies and our usual round of home remedies. I am trying to rest where I can. I hoped some of you are missing me just a little! We have some exciting things coming up for us this year and I can't wait to show you what we've been up to. Meanwhile, pray that I will spring out of it and get back in the swing! By the way, I just had my birthday yesterday, Monday...yes, 39! Actually it was yesterday officially. Glenn is going to be 40 this year! See the nice flowers he brought me for my birthday? I think we're going out to dinner when we feel better. Please remember I am not feeling well in this picture. :) Also, please pray for Bryce, that he continues fever free. I am not sure if this is the same thing dragging out or a new one.
Blessings to you all!

Well... Happy Belated Birthday!!!
I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. This year just seems to be bad for these viruses. It took a few weeks for us to rid of it.

I did miss you and your updates, good to see you back on, but I totally get's crazy!
Praying for you and your family. Glad to hear Braveheart is doing OK, I will continue to pray my friend!

Toby was really in his element...running...last night. He did REALLY good at the games. More coordinated than most kids.
Abby of course was very good at helping Patty sing the David song and answer Bible questions.

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.
