For those of you who still come to this blog checking to see if I got around to writing another post (or still discover this blog for the first time) despite my extreme lack of regularity here recently... :o - I STARTED A NEW BLOG! :D
I still plan to write here again (soon, I hope), but I have a new adventure to write about so I started a blog just to document my adventures with triathlon training. Oh, and by the way, I just participated in my first official sprint triathlon (first one I trained for and didn't have to swim on my back the entire way; yeah! :D) You'll have to come to my new blog to hear about it. :)
Each day is filled with HOURS of mundane. Stuff we do because we MUST. Necessary, but not worth writing mom about! ;)
However, there are also tiny little miracles that make life BIG Little Wonders. :) The little stuff that makes LIFE worth so much!!!
Maybe the difference between a seemingly boring or pointless life, and a meaningful or spectacular life, is simply a matter of not allowing these BIG little moments to get lost and forgotten – not taking these tiny moments for granted; and instead noticing and reviling in these moments with gratitude and joy. ;) Corine :D

Hi. My name is Corine, which means "Fair Young Maiden" or "Handmaiden of the Lord." I'm fair, and constantly accused of looking younger than I am; and as much as I enjoy this, what I truly aspire is the later. I’m a wife of 26 years, rollerblading mom of four+, nutrition consultant, triathlete in training, kid at heart... but most of all, I'm a daughter of God, who loves Him with all my heart, and pray to serve Him always... :)
I memorized the 100th Psalm when I was 4 years old and LOVE IT! A few of my favorite lines come to mind often..."Make a Joyful noise unto the Lord!" "Serve the Lord with Gladness!""Come before his presence with THANKSGIVING!" I hope that in life and as I write here, I will remember to do these things always, and sincerely hope that you will be comfortable joining me... I love people, and this wonderful journey we call life! Welcome to my blog and thank you for being part of my journey!
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley
How to Really Live... ;)
Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders & says... "Oh crab-apples....she's awake !"
Sometimes it's good to be a Follower ;)

Sacred Responsibilities of Parenthood - (link)
Motherhood is the greatest potential influence for either good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world. - David O. McKay
... a friendly reminder to myself :o
Women of God
Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald
