Thursday Shares and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. friends and readers!  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

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.

By plucking her petals, you can't gather the beauty of the flower.

You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy.  Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae. - Paul Walker

I notice everything.  And by everything, I literally mean everything.  I notice when someone stops hitting me up like they used to.  I notice when the way someone talks to me starts changing. I notice the little things that people do, and the little things they used to do.  I notice when things change, and when it's no longer the same.  I notice every single little detail.  I just don't say anything.

Bring on the cups so red!  Gratitude, gobbling and pie are ahead!  And with jingles and hohoho's too so near!  It's time to get your twirl in gear...the holiday season is finally here!

Buy yourself flowers.  Simply because they're beautiful and you deserve beauty in your life.

The keys to good health:  buy food with mindful thought and not impulsively.  Choose less food with wheat, sugar, sodium, crazy chemical additives, etc. Cook food healthfully - for example:  using coconut oil instead of other oils.  Drink more water, especially helpful before meals.  Eat slowly and stop before full. Work out a little daily, even going for a nice walk is helpful.  Get your Vitamin Zzz's.  Sleep enough.

Never ignore someone who loves you and cares for you...because one day you might wake up and realize you lost the moon while counting the stars.

The first caterpillar to turn into a butterfly must have been like...Wooooah!

Healthy diet foods as "forward food" or "backward food".  Before you eat, ask:  "Is this food helping me move forward to better health and improved energy - or backward to feeling unhealthy with a spike-and-crash depleted feeling?"

You don't have to figure out how to solve all your problems right now.  Just figure out what you can do to feel better in this moment.

You can't fall if you don't climb.  But there's no joy in living your whole life on the ground.

Don't let someone's reckless behavior turn you into a recluse.  Vow to become a force to be reckoned with instead!

Choose to live generously and watch your life change.

Sticks and stones will break your bones, but names will never hurt you.  NOT TRUE.  WORDS HURT. Our tongue is a very dangerous weapon.

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!

    Merci pour ce beau partage Linda

    Bonne journée

  2. Is it today? We do not celebrate Thanksgiving here but we do have turkey for Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your readers. Cheers!

  3. I can't decide if that little turtle looks sad or angry.

  4. Nice collection of quotes today, especially the last four.

  5. Hi Linda, Happy Thanksgiving to you! With Christmas coming, I love to watch this video on cooking turkey. Oh yes, our tongue is a very dangerous tool that can hurt terribly if we are not careful!

  6. The Christmas decorations were good to look at in the video.

  7. Thanks ...yes words can hurt more deeply than a sword.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you

  8. Lovely collection like always...

  9. je te souhaite une belle journée

    ici le temps est humide , mais un peu + doux et le ciel vire au bleu

    pour le vie ici la ville reprends sa vie mais le coeur n'y est pas ....


    la paix de Jean de la Fontaine ....

    Le noir démon des combats
    Va quitter cette contrée
    Nous reverrons ici-bas
    Régner la déesse Astrée

    O Paix! source de tout bien
    Viens enrichir cette terre
    Et fais qu'il ne reste rien
    Des images de la guerre.

    Chasse des soldats gloutons
    La troupe fière et hagarde
    Qui mange tous nos moutons
    Et bat celui qui les garde.

    Délivre ce beau séjour
    De leur brutale furie
    Et ne permet qu'à l'amour
    D'entrer dans la bergerie.

    Fais qu'avecque le berger
    On puisse voir la bergère
    Qui coure d'un pas léger
    Qui danse sur la fougère

    Et qui du berger tremblant
    Voyant le peu de courage
    S'endorme, ou fasse semblant
    De s'endormir à l'ombrage

    Accorde à nos longs désirs
    De plus douces destinées
    Ramène nous les plaisirs
    Absents depuis tant d'années.

    Etouffe tous ces travaux
    Et leurs semences mortelles
    Que les plus grands de nos maux
    Soient les rigueurs de nos belles

    Et que nous passions les jours
    Etendus sur l'herbe tendre
    Prêts à conter nos amour
    A qui voudra les entendre.

    Again? I thought you just had Thanksgiving a while ago?
    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving either.

    1. Hi dear friend! Yes, here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving in October. But my wishes and the video are for my friends and readers in the U.S. (United States). They celebrate their Thanksgiving today. :)

  11. Wow, very impressive christimas decoration, so many of them in the video.

    A beautiful and cozy Christmas Dinner Table Linda.

  13. i've never had to cook a turkey before (and i kinda think i never will) ... it might be interesting to try, though i don't think i'd do a good job! :)

  14. Divertido gag y videos.

  15. Thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes. We do have lots to be thankful for. Our good health and the health of our loved ones is a blessing. Have a happy day!

  16. Wow, Thursday already. Christmas is coming and that means my cruise is coming soon in January. At our age, Christmas is for the grandchildren but the cruise is the gift for me.
    Have a great Thursday Linda. See ya.

    Cruisin Paul

  17. I especially enjoyed the 20's Christmas video...that was before my time but some of the people involved could have been my parents! :) Some great Salmansohn materials today and one in particular I found immediately helpful. Merci!

  18. Ah Linda - wonderful post friend. Just stopping by to tell you thank you for all you share each and every week. Have a blessed day. Hugs

  19. Lucky for us here in Canada, we can be thankful again with our American neighbours. Being thankful is always good for the health and for our lives.

  20. Loved the gag Linda. I thought that last guy was going to disrobe. Bless his heart.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. I'm off to get ready for our train ride and Thanksgiving day dinner. ☺

  21. You know, Linda, I always feel so much lighter, prettier, and healthier when I leave your blog. You fill my heart and mind with Light - thank you for that, and for your many kindnesses. Hope your coming week-end will be enjoyable. Please know on your darkest days, that you bring Light, Love and Peace to others - so you DO make a big difference - not just locally - but world wide! Thank you, Linda! xo

  22. Hola Linda, como siempre muy interesantes los vídeos y tu estupendo trabajo que no hace pasar un rato muy entretenido. Un fuerte abrazo y se muy feliz.

  23. that sticks and stones expression is very weak to logic

  24. Oi Linda,
    No começo você disse que a postagem era para os americanos, eu fiquei, apesar de morar no Brasil, pois faço parte do Continente Americano.kkk
    Seu blog anima até defunto. Adoro.

  25. Hope you are having a fantastic week, Linda! Thinking of you and counting our friendship amongst my blessings this US Thanksgiving day.

  26. Bonjour Linda, que j'aime les décos vintage, superbes!!! Bise et bonne soirée toute douce!

  27. happy Thanksgiving to US friends, enjoy your Thursday Linda

  28. My darling, blessed Linda,
    I know that I do repeat myself, but I'll never get tired to say and write that your blog is so marvellous to read, to watch .... to enjoy !
    May your Thanksgiving be Very Happy,
    With all my heart and deep gratitude

  29. Thx my darling

  30. Hahaaa..., Linda !
    Nice quotes !

  31. Getting into the festive season! It's started over here too. Already all of the shopping malls are covered with their Christmas decorations.

  32. I know full well that words hurt.

  33. Haven't we all set off those store alarms at one time or another? It's an awful feeling. It would be so embarrassing to be put through the kind of search the did in the JFL gag. The suggestion about labeling food as a forward food or a backward food was interesting. I might try that.

  34. So much to think about here. I love all the quotes. Thank you for visiting my brought me here.

  35. The moon and the stars, the reckless/reckoned with turtle, and butterfly were stand outs for me today. Thank you Linda :) Happy Thanksgiving back even though I know you had yours already! Thanks for another great post

  36. You are a joy and blessing, sweet Linda. I am thankful for you and your kindness! Love and hugs!

  37. Great post. really enjoy the Maryline music video. I always enjoy all the videos. Your quotes were great. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  38. you make me smile
