Tuesday Choices and My Birthday is Coming!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
In one week from today, on October 27th, I will be 59 years young!  :)  I have a special blog post for my birthday and I hope you will come and celebrate with me.  Thank you so much.  

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Mini Maestro, Little Girl Conducting a Church Choir (I think this beautiful child has a wonderful career lined up).  :)

Jimmy the Therapy Kangaroo Lives in our Trailer

7 Money Saving Life Hacks You Should Know

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.

Make sure you are planning your days so 10 years from now you can say you chose your life, you didn't settle for it.


The time has come to let go of everything you didn't do right, all the negative things people have said and simply focus on all you are becoming.


Whatever your problem is, the answer is not in the fridge.


Stop crossing oceans for people who won't even jump a puddle for you.


Happy people focus on what they have.  Unhappy people focus on what is missing.


Beware of people who dislike cats. - Irish Proverb


Not all wounds are visible.  Walk gentle in the lives of others.


If Plan A didn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters.  Stay cool.


Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress;  working hard for something we love is called passion. 


Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing. - Camille Pissarro


Just breathe...and remember, when you're stressed is when you most need to look at all the ways you're blessed!


Nature.  Cheaper than therapy.


Some days it's hard to find motivation.  Some days motivation finds you!!!




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!

  8. Happy Birthday, Linda, your film clips are interesting. I like the kangaroo, it seems to be a fun pet, hard to imagine living with one. I wonder how they treat a vegetable garden.

  14. Bientôt c'est ta Fête mais 59 ans aujourd'hui ce n'est pas vieux? Je suis ton aînée de 3 ans .... Le temps passe très vite. Tiens je viens d'apprendre que Justin Truddeau est Premier Ministre du Canada !!!! Je me souviens de lui enfant lorsque son père était lui aussi Premier Ministre.
    Merci pour ta sélection du jour et tous tes jolis posts. Belle journée. Gros bisous

  15. Advanced Happy Birthday! And I really do love seeing your inspirational posts, esp. in the morning:)

    PS So happy with last night's results. Anyone but Harper is A-Ok with me:)

  16. Good morning, dear Linda! That toddler certainly was feeling the music as the church choir sang. She seems destined to make music her life's passion. I enjoyed meeting Jimmy the therapy roo but agree that he will soon be too large and rambunctious to keep inside that tiny trailer. The video containing money saving hacks was very informative and I forwarded it to Mrs. Shady.

    Tomorrow is another busy day for me, dear Linda. I will visit you as soon as I can but it might be late in the day. Thank you, dear friend!

  17. I remember the little gal! Her clip was circulating in Facebook some time back & she's simply adorable. Love it, Linda! xoxo

  20. Another wonderful collection of very meaningful and important posters, etc. I love the gag, too, of course, and the money saving tips, but it's Salmansohn's posters that really hit home. Merci !

    And have a super day today!

    Yours, Sarah

  26. this is exciting ... one more week ... i'm looking forward to the date! :) the videos today are very cool, especially on the therapy kangaroo ... i've heard of therapy dogs and other animals before, but not kangaroos ... fascinating and enlightening :)

  28. Happy early birthday to you!
    LOL at Premiere Suites Atlantic image...I thought it was by Meanwhile in Canada :-)

  29. Hi Linda. The naming of the World's birds is a strange and wonderful enigma. Our European Redwing is in no way related to your Red-winged Blackbird but both are superb in their own right.

    You're right as usual. Nature is infinitely more effective than therapy.

  30. I wish I could sent you a birthday card? Shall I ( you can email me on: stuurnkaart@gmail.com) But I think It shall come too late because it must travel with plane and train.

    Big hug: Ralph

  33. Great quotes! I esepcially like: Happy people focus on what they have. Unhappy people focus on what is missing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Merci ma belle Linda, Bise et bonne soirée dans la joie!

  35. Haha, I need that fridge one. Have you heard of a Passion Planner? It's designed to make sure you're working toward your dreams and goals, not just living day to day. A fellow children's writer introduced me to it and I LOVE it. Happy early birthday. Can't wait for the blog party!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would like to be 59 again, we just started our full time travels then:)

    ReplyDelete

  42. Loved the JFL gag, although I did wonder why no one offered to carry the box so the policeman could hold the phone himself. The child is church is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  43. looking forward to celebrating with you, love you

    ReplyDelete
  44. I definitely won't miss your birthday :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow. The quote about crossing oceans for people who wouldn't jump a puddle for me, soooooooooo true.

    I also really enjoyed the Salmansohn about planning my days so in 10 years I can say that I choose my life. I was just thinking about that and writing!

    Good post. Good, good post. Thank you! Lookin' forward to birthday post!

    ReplyDelete

    Sending much dear love, I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead and please, never stop blogging, I cannot do without the moments you present me as a gift here :) !!!!
