Thursday's Post

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

Sound Therapy - Mt. Fuji and Morning Birds

Umbrella Cockatoo Therapy Bird, Harriet

Japan's Seven Stars Luxury Train

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.

Find someone who makes you realize three things: one, that home is not a place, but a feeling.  Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments.  And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared. 


There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths.


Love yourself enough to let go of guilt, blame, shame, anger, fear, loss, worry - anything that makes you sad.


Smile. You were strong enough to make it through your past.  Smile.  You still have your whole future ahead of you.


Do not give up.  Things will get better.  Give time some time.


Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. - A. A. Milne


You can tell who the strong women are.  They are the ones you see building each other up instead of tearing each other down.


If it doesn't make you happy, why do you keep choosing it?




Sitting silently beside a friend who is hurting may be the best gift we can give.


I love the type of hugs where you can physically feel the sadness leaving your body.








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!

  1. I use sound therapy every single day and sleep with 'sound therapy' every single night! I also have some beautiful weeds that I do, indeed, cultivate!!

  2. Good morning, dear Linda!

    It was delightful to view these scenes from the area around Mt. Fuji and to hear no music, only the natural sounds of birds and rushing water. How relaxing! I also enjoyed the antics of Harriet the Cockatoo Therapy Bird. When I was a boy I owned a parrot. It learned dozens of words but, for the most part, it was not docile or trainable like that playful, affectionate cockatoo. Mrs. Shady and I are thinking about taking a train trip across Canada. That Luxury Train in Japan has me more excited than ever to take a long train ride and see the sights.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  6. Enjoyed the video of Mt. Fuji which was especially nice with the birds singing and the water trickling. I also enjoyed the luxury train experience. That would be fun to do one day!

    I'm sorry I missed your birthday post, Linda! I of course visited it now; it's beautiful and interesting. After the lovely, warm autumn we now have had some cold, windy days and I caught a cold.
    Stay warm! xx

  19. Your site is stunning! I love all the inspirational pictures with quotes and messages on them. The first one really rings true to me, because I've just gone through the loss of my fiance. Well.. we broke up. And I have no idea how to start all over again... so that was a lovely piece to read. Thank you!

    I followed you on GFC! Hope to keep in touch xxx

  26. I loved the train in Japan but I wonder what would be the cost. It has to very expensive. " Do not give up. Things will get better. Give time some time." well that statement came to life for me.
    Enjoy Thursday Linda. See ya.

  28. Love the expressions on some of the faces in the JFL gag. The cockatoo was fun to watch. And I love the thought about wrong turns just being unexpected paths.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I always love your "Meanwhile in Canada" photos.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The gag had me laughing so hard I was crying. That is hands down the best gag I've seen here. Good grief the looks on their faces.

    I want to ride on that train in Japan. That was awesome.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  32. The only way one can make that Meanwhile In Canada pic more Canadian is to add Mounties.

  40. An elderly lady used to have a cockatoo just down the road from us and some say the cockatoo was nearly as old as the lady. Her house was right in front of one of the most difficult holes on the course and the bird picked up some very colourful language ;-)

  41. Linda, I liked the video of Mt. Fuji and the morning birds. I also liked the "weeds" quote. Some people don't see the weeds as being flowers, but they are lovely to me. I guess I am what you call a "nature person," so this quote and video caught my eye right away.

    Have a good rest of the week, and Happy Halloween. Do you celebrate it where you are?
