raising dragons

Braveheart is getting quite swollen in his face and bloated from the meds. He only has less than a week to take that, we are glad to report. Tuesday I took the 2 littles and their friends to the discount pool night and let them swim. B got his much awaited date night with dad. They went pee wee golfing. B reported later that they had a really good time. Last night we watched HOW TO TRAIN YOU DRAGON together. Me and the man have never seen it yet. It was so good!
This morning B was up reading a great book. RAISING DRAGONS BY BRYAN DAVIS. He is a Christian Fiction writer. Dylan enjoyed that series when he was young and now Damsel picked it up at the library and can't put it down easily. So, I was pleasantly surprised that B was farther along than she. We highly recommend that series. This series is listed as 9-12 years. He has other series that are YA.

We go for more chemo tomorrow. Prayers are welcome. The days are surreal here, waiting and enjoying each other. Planning for what is coming. God has given great peace. B is ready this time around. I still wish that this wasn't what must be done. Either way I am believing that God will do a great healing testimony through this. I am at peace. We just wait, believe and stand in faith and see God work. It is odd how calm and normal things are around here. We have kept all the summer activities to a minimum as well. It's almost like nothing is happening in a weird kind of way.

Well, hug your kidlets and I will be back to muse about my days getting ready for transplant...

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.
