Saturday Sunshine

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Humans are a Dog's Best Friend

How to Make Baked Alaska

Your Life as a Dog

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.

Looking for greener grass?  Water where you're standing and be amazed at what springs up!


Feeling free.




Soften your guardedness, be defenseless for a moment, let go, relax, breathe, open up.


100 kisses a day....keeps the doctor away.


Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.


Never be afraid to stand tall and proud.


The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. - Joseph Campbell


You are not a product of your circumstances.  You are a product of your decisions. - Stephen Covey


Start now.  Start where you are.  Start with fear. Start with pain.  Start with hands shaking.  Start with doubt.  Just...start!






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

  31. Linda, the Gypsy soul quote I liked, maybe because I am a bit of a gypsy myself. And Your Life as a Dog video was interesting. It's nice to know how dogs see the world around us. I have always been a dog person, so I appreciate this one especially.

    Have a nice weekend.

  32. Baked Alaska! Wow, it's been years since I had one last!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I loved the quote about the privilege of being who you are. It's a shame you have to waste half of life trying to please others before we learn to just be ourselves.
    Have a wonderful weekend

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ah, Baked Alaska, I've had it numerous times and now I can make it myself! Thanks Linda. ;-)

  35. I miss having a dog. Dogs are the best as they give unconditional love, have their own personalities and they become your best friend. I hope you will have a fantastic long weekend.

    ReplyDelete

  39. Good afternoon Linda. That video of helping that handicapped lady explains what there are wonderful people still around in the world. I makes me smile.
