Sunday Serenity

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

The Stroll (1950's Original Dance)

An Animal Sanctuary that Promotes Kindness

Black Beauty Ranch:  America's Largest Animal Sanctuary

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.

Doreen from Pender Island sent this photo to the CBC.  She had been trying to grow a bulb garden in this old canoe, but it became a deer bed instead!


Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.  Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. - Denis Waitley


Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. - E.E. Cummings


Please do not allow the challenges of your past to stop you from becoming who you are meant to be.


Earth was created for all life, not just human life.


Love yourself, respect yourself.  Never sell yourself short.  Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think.  You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it. - Marcus Allen


Let your kindness light the path for others.


Reach out.


Never trust the doubted ones and never doubt the trusted ones.  God has given us "real eyes" to "realise" the "real lies".  Think twice and act wise!


One breed crossed with another one is not a "Snorkie", "Cockapoo" or a "Chiweenie", it's simply a mutt!  Why pay hundreds of dollar for one when there are many beautiful mutts already waiting for you at your local shelter or rescue?  Save money and help put puppy mills and backyard breeders out of business.


Nothing wilts faster than laurels that have been rested upon. - Percy Shelley


When you are depressed about the passed or stressed out about the future, bring your attention back to your breath.  Breathing is a here and now experience, it takes you back to what is happening this very second.


Believe in magic and miracles and all things possible!




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. Hi Linda, I find something wonderful in every one of your posts. Today it is this ... "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. - Denis Waitley" Thank you for your excellent blog!

  35. Born in 1959, I missed "the Stroll" the first time around. But, sister, when American Graffiti and Happy Days were hot commodities, I loved the sock hops and theme dances that sprang up! And then...we all STROLLED!!

    Thanks for a great memory, Linda!

  36. I love these words a lot - Earth was created for all life, not just human life.

  38. The human life/earth one reminds me of brother citing something in the bible about man having supremacy/control over animals even though we are all animals.

    I told him to find a lion and tell the lion about how superior he is and how the lion must respect his authority

  39. I like Deer, with barbecue sauce and served with Guacamole.

  40. The deer must find that very comfortable!
