Asking for Your Prayers and Thoughts on My Behalf

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I was pretty sick today but thankfully it looks as if my stomach tried to protect itself from whatever it was and brought it up.  I guess you all get what I mean, no need for me to say it in a gross way.  LOL!  Thank you all so much, I really appreciate it.  :)  I hope you all enjoy today's post!

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

Cheap Organizing - Tips to Re-organize any Space

Watch Moose Fight in a Quiet Alaska Suburb (I am just glad that nobody was hurt, at least it looks this way)

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.

Anything can happen!

Walking with grandpa...I like to walk with grandpa, his steps are short like mine.  He doesn't say "Now hurry up!"  He always take his time.  Most people have to hurry, they do not stop and see.  I'm glad that God made grandpa "unrushed" and young like me.

If you believe in yourself anything is possible.

Patience ensures victory.

Sometimes following your heart means losing your mind.

Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving.  When we can be alone we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.

If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito. - Dalai Lama

Let's not get all wrapped up in our problems today...they unravel when we look at all the ways we're blessed.

Every time you thought you couldn't keep moving forward, you did.  Take a moment to appreciate your strength.

If you were able to believe in Santa Claus for like 8 years, you can believe in yourself.  You got this.

Many Buddhists consider huge difficulties to be a sign you're an old soul.  The bigger your misfortunes, the closer you are to enlightenment.  Whether you believe this or not, it's certainly cheery to reframe all your life's bad events as tests of your character.  If you feel particularly tested right now, ask yourself what the heck you're being tested for!  Patience? Compassion?  Resilience?  Forgiveness? Open-mindedness?  What strengths must you develop further?  Now consciously go out there and develop them.

At some point you are going to want to give up. Consider this a reminder:  Don't you dare.


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!

    Bonjour Linda !

    Quel beau post !

    J'aime beaucoup "Walking with Grand'Pa" ... SUPERBE !

  2. Feel better soon! I'm sorry you are sick but glad your body got it out. I very much enjoyed watching the moose and the mosquito quote was very good :) Feel better, I am thinking of you!

  3. Hope you are feeling much improved.
    I like that glass, it's different.

  4. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I usually take weekends off from blogging because I promised Mrs. Shady that I would, but I am here for you tonight because I know you are ill and I am hoping that my visit brings cheer and allows you to feel a little better.

    The gag video was another great one. There are many potentially funny scenarios involving old ladies and it was hilarious to see her racing off in the police cruiser. I was amazed by the beauty and intricacy of that knitted glass. I appreciated the organizing tips but thought of a flaw in the plan. When you dispose of the DVD or CD cases which include original artwork, booklets and other inserts, you automatically devalue the items tremendously. If you ever wanted to resell them you would find few people willing to buy them and they would only pay you a fraction of their previous worth. That moose battle was a spectacle to behold. I'm glad no one, beast nor human, was injured.

    Please get well soon, my cherished friend Linda. My thoughts and prayers will be with you this weekend. God bless!

  5. sending you positive thoughts and hoping that after some good rest, you'll find yourself completely recovered really, really soon. and as usual, i know you know to take care of yourself, with lots of fluids!

  6. Oh dear! Hope you're feeling better. Take care there, God bless.

  7. Hope all is well with you now, a fast episode is way better than something that lasts for days.

    The Moose Fight, goes violently Linda. Have a nice weekend.

  9. Awww Linda, I hope you are feeling better. That's an awful feeling. Rest up this weekend.

  10. The Old Soul Buddhist quote is my favorite from here. I really needed to read it actually.
    3 months ago I was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis and it's been such a battle. For the most part, it completely ruined my life over the last few months. I was too embarrassed to go and out see anyone or do anything. I have been miserable and to an extent I still am because obviously if you have something physically noticeably wrong it's bound to effect you.. but this quote really helped:

    "Many Buddhists consider huge difficulties to be a sign you're an old soul. The bigger your misfortunes, the closer you are to enlightenment. Whether you believe this or not, it's certainly cheery to reframe all your life's bad events as tests of your character. If you feel particularly tested right now, ask yourself what the heck you're being tested for! Patience? Compassion? Resilience? Forgiveness? Open-mindedness? What strengths must you develop further? Now consciously go out there and develop them."

    So thank you!

    I am sending a heap of love and light your way in the hopes that you will soon heal and be 100 per cent perfect once more xxx

  11. Yes, thinking of you, Linda.
    Good gag !

  12. coucou avec toujours un ciel gris et pluvieux mais il annonce 20° pour demain ...

    trop chaud pour novembre mais on va pas s'en plaindre

    bisous et passe un doux we

    porte toi bien et

    a demain

  13. Get well soon, Linda! Happy weekend!

    Get well soon!

  15. Sorry to hear you were sick. I hope you recover fully.
    Oh that sleep pea just made my day. :)

  16. bless your heart. sorry you are not feeling well, praying for you. I love you.

  17. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I just popped in to let you know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you got some sleep and feel better today. God bless!

  18. That's one of the funnier gags. We have lots of old, retired folks in Ocala and some of them think they can do just about anything because of their "status."

    I went out and got some organizing tips and I'm going to get organized just as soon as I can figure out where I left them.

    Glad to hear that you bout with stomach problems is over. I hate that stuff!

  19. Haha...the Santa one is perfect! I can't believe Christmas is already pretty much here. We were at the mall yesterday and they were playing Christmas music. Wasn't it just summer five minutes ago?

  20. I like the mosquito one

  21. What a Moose Fight in that Quiet Alaska Suburb. It got a little scary there until one gave up. I'm sure glad that the people in that suburb didn't get hurt.
    Wow, you never see that in Amherstburg.
    Have a moosey Saturday Linda. See ya.

    Cruisin Paul

  22. Great choices once again on the videos and quotes. Hope you are feeling better. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  23. Hope you're feeling better quickly! That moose fight video was something else! Only in Alaska.

  24. The Dalai Lama quote is quite wise! Feel better soon!

  25. Oh, poor gal! I'm so sorry you are sick today and I'm putting you on my prayer list for sure. Feel better soon.

    Lovely post, as usual (knitted glass! My stars!).

  26. Hello Linda, I enjoyed the funny video and the moose video. I hope you are feeling better today.. Enjoy your weekend!

  27. I hope you are feeling better Linda. Positive thoughts and energy all the way to you now.

  28. I'm glad you're feeling better. Sounds like you had a bad time.

    Loved the gag. I would have been beside myself losing my patrol car.

    Love the moose fight. Those males just don't get along most of the time.

    Have a healthy day Linda. ☺

  29. Hi Linda, I hope your tummy is feeling alright by now. I enjoyed your video and quotes. Have a wonderful Saturday!

  30. I'm so glad you're feeling better. Barf is no fun. As a knitter I find that knitted glass amazing. And that Buddhist philosophy is so interesting. There are certain Native American tribes that believe that a person has not lived a full life unless they have had to endure some extreme hardship. I've had so many health problems so I actually find that very comforting. Sleep-pea. Tee hee. Big hug, Linda!!!!!

  31. j'espère que ça va mieux avec ta santé Linda

    la quote du Dalai Lama me plaît beaucoup


  32. Good prank/gag today! Hope you feel better soon.

  33. Hope you will be better tomorrow, enjoy your Saturday Linda

  34. J'espère que ta santé est meilleure Linda ?
    Prends bien soin de toi.
    Merci pour tous tes jolis posts ... tu es SUPER
    Bonne fin de journée. Bises

  35. As usual I feel so amazed by your posts, always so cared, you surely put so much time doing them, and we all can appreciate your work !
    I love'WALKING WITH GRANDPA', I had a special Grandpa who has walked by my side for so many years... and now for some time he's watching me from Up Above .... I just thought like that little child ... such Granpas are a God's blessing !
    Thank you darling Linda for your thoughts, take care, my sweetest one

  36. J'espère que tu vas mieux ma chère Linda! Bise et bonne journée toute douce!

  37. Ahhh I am so sorry darling. Please take special care of yourself. Get well soon! I will pray for you. Liuba x

  38. I definitely need those reorganising tips. Organisation of my belongings is not a strong point.

  39. Another fun gag. That moose fight would be something to see, but that one was a little too close for comfort. "Sleep-pea" is cute. I've been away for a week, with very poor internet connection, and have been catching up with your posts. Sorry to hear you were sick today and hope you're fully recovered by now.

    Bonne soirée Linda !

    Bises de Paris pour toi.

  41. Anything can happen, when we walk slow enough, stop and see.

  42. Hope you feel 100 percent real soon!

  43. All my best wishes for a speedy recovery. You are remarkable.

  44. Good to hear that you are feeling much better now. I too have made the same mistake before. Now I will make sure I eat something before taking medication which states "after food". At least even a few biscuits will help. Have a beautiful new week, Linda!

  45. Oh my friend, I hope you are over that stomach flu. I prayed for you. These are so funny. And then I saw the walk with Grandpa and choked up but then the one about being alone hit me right between the eyes. I can think of a few people I would love to send that message to because I do feel they use our friendship as an escape. Wow is all I can say.

    Hugs dear Linda.

  46. I hope you are feeling much better.
    The glass knit is amazing!
