Sunday Serenity

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Texas Boys Mow Lawn to Keep Woman from Going to Jail

Picon Punch (Thirsty for)

These Horses Give Prisoners a Second Chance

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

May the month ahead be filled with an abundance of magnificent miracles, blissful blessings and splendid surprises.  Welcome July


Animals love and suffer, cry and laugh; their hearts rise up in anticipation and fall in despair...they feel.


Old, peeling and crusty paint has to be scraped away to make way for a fresh coat. (unless you get a "bargain")  Letting go of the old in life can sometimes feel like being scraped and sanded, but it's just prep work for bright new hues!


Be the peace you want to see in the world.






From this day forward, I'm going to let my burdens go and have faith that things will start to get better. It's going to be a long road ahead, but I will get there.


I choose...to live by choice, not by chance.  To make changes, not excuses.  To be motivated, not manipulated.  To be useful, not used.  To excel, not compete.  I choose self-esteem, not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice.  Not the random opinion of others.


Everyone is gifted - but some people never open their package!  Live, believe, inspire...




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  4. Is there a law there that states that the grass must not be over 18 inches long? Oh dear!!! That would be a problem for many here - especially those staying in rented houses and not bothered to take care of the premises. The town council could have sent people to go and cut for her, 75 years old - instead of issuing a warrant for her to appear in court. So horrible. Luckily, there were those so very nice boys around. Tsk! Tsk!

  9. When we lived in Arizona many years ago, small scorpions were very real and very dangerous and I kept finding them in the kitchen. I never toyed with them at all. But I did tease the girls in school with tarantulas! I was very bad! :)

  37. What is it about scorpions that freak me out so much? I've only seen them in pet shops....{{{shiver}}}

    I love all the therapeutic uses of animals with incarcerated individuals. It's a great idea and seems to help.
