March is almost over

This was a strange week.  We have been riddled with so many illnesses and different things going on around here and the weather has been so cold this year.  Spring is sad that Bryce isn't here on earth and is having trouble warming up.  :)
Sunday started out sorta hard as Glenn I had to really work hard to see a video in Sunday School that was part of a wonderful series we are studying, but it focused on the funeral of the main character.  In that it showed a man who spoke regarding the loss of his young son the year before. Oh, my that was hard.  But it was good.  Then we sang IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL in church.  I appreciated it though.  This was one of the songs from B's funeral.
Another challenge/ milestone was our first family get together with my mom's side for my Grandmother's B-day which included cousins and aunts and uncles, other children...etc...it was interesting to see how things were, who spoke to me/us and about what.  I won't go into details but it was an 'ok' night.  It was a bit emotional though, seeing everyone and knowing Bryce wasn't there.  It made me sad because he would have loved it.  I had a good cry on the way home that evening.  I couldn't help it.  It felt good.  It was healing.  My Agent boy was very loving to me, showing me how much he has grown into a fine young man these days, answers to prayer.  This has all been so hard on him.
Now it is Good Friday, so we remember our Savior, his death, what He did for us on the cross.  Maybe this is a big day in Heaven?  Do they celebrate?  Oh how happy I am to know he is up there filled with joy!  We could not go on without this hope.
We love and miss you our dear boy.

Bryce was on my mind last night as Rachel and I are part of a drama at church. There was a coffin and we were supposed to be grieving. Anyway, I thought of your lovely boy and I could not be sad! He is rejoicing with the angels! But my heart floods with tears for you, my friend. As a mom, you will always have a special tender spot for B. Tears are good. Glad Agent Boy is maturing and able to offer comfort. What a joy that must be! continuing to pray for all of you.

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.
