Sunday Serenity

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Hubn Bubn Polka Band - Line Dance Polka - Guitar

Soundie: Rosalie Allen Yodels "Chime Bells"

Seven Stars Galleria Hotel - Milan, Italy

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.

It's kind of fun to do the impossible. - Walt Disney


If you really love someone, even if there was a million reasons to leave, you would still look for the one reason to stay.


It's not how many times you fall off that counts - what matters is that you climb back on!


In Newfoundland, a woman called to complain of noisy kids.  This is how the police responded.


Learn from yesterday.  Live for today.  Hope for tomorrow.


Raise your words, not your voice.  It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. - Rumi


Here's a cheap, easy way to let someone know you care:  don't look at your phone when you're with them.


It is okay to be at a place of struggle.  Struggle is just another word for growth.  Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then.  In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding.  It is their indication of real and important progress.  The only one who doesn't struggle is the one who doesn't grow.  So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign. Celebrate your struggle. - Neale Donald Walsh


Addictions occur when you see to fill an emptiness inside you with something outside of you.


Good things are coming.  Just keep believing.


I am a lighthouse rather than a lifeboat.  I do not rescue, but instead help others to find their way to shore.


Empathy is a choice, and it's a vulnerable choice. In order to connect with you, I have to connect with something in myself that knows that feeling. - Brene Brown


If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction. - Martin Kornfield




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

  8. The exploding baguette was a hoot! So true about the "cheap, easy way to let someone know you care." There's a lot of truth in that addictions quote, too.

  11. polka is something that i've always found to be very interesting ... we don't have a culture of polka at all in my homeland, and i can't say i quite enjoy the music, but it's fascinating nonetheless and i respect how it's something that a lot of other people love :)

  12. Oh wow...that quote about struggling is so appropriate for me at this moment in time...have really helped me to see with new eyes!
    Thank you so much, dear Linda...for all these wonderfully inspiring posts.:)

  15. Love today's Meanwhile in Canada. No one should complain about the sounds of kids having fun.
    Hope you are having a nice weekend. Almost all we're hearing about are the attacks in Paris. It's just unbelievable. What's happening in this world. :(

  16. Ha ha... the gun baguette is so funny!
    Oh but I still feel sad about what happened in Paris.

  44. I love all the "meanwhile in Canada" stories. Have a lovely week.

  45. I think Polka music is so festive and uplifting. I heard Polka music this summer and it made me smile. The Disney quote is delightful. Nel and Jess love Disneyland, and think it's the happiest place on earth. I wasn't sure what you meant about the noisy kids, and I'm curious. Could you e-mail me and let me know. Thanks.

    Have a wonderful week ahead, Linda.

  47. I loved the B&B in the UK way back in 1994, especially waking up to the smell of fresh toast and coffee and frying bacon, ham and sausages. Unforgettable!

  48. Voted! And I'd rather be a lighthouse too. Or a green house - helping the environment! :D
