Friday Shares

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

You are needed...even if your halo is a little crooked.


It's the season for gratitude...and there's always something to be grateful for!


Music can cure things medication never will.


Sometimes figuring out why something happened isn't nearly as important as the lesson you learn from it happening. - Mandy Hale


True happiness isn't about the things you have.  It's about the thoughts you have.  It's called positive thinking, not positive thing-ing.


Don't let the darkness from your past block the light of joy in your present.  What happened is done. Stop giving time to things which no longer exist, when there is so much joy to be found here and now.


Positive circle, positive thoughts, positive things, positive life!


Happiness is a choice...and it's your choice.


The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning. - Ivy Baker


I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being.  I'll put it before any of the things like courage or bravery or generosity or anything else...kindness - that simple word.  To be kind - it covers everything, to my mind.  If you're kind that's it. - Roald Dahl


Turn your wounds into wisdom.


I never lose.  Either I win or I learn.


No tree has branches so foolish as to fight amongst themselves.


Life is only traveled once.  Today's moments become tomorrow's memories.  Enjoy every moment, good or bad because the gift of life is life itself.


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!

  3. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I very much enjoyed the latest Friskies' advert disguised as an entertaining vignette. The various types of cats shown in the music video are adorable. For most of my life I wasn't very fond of cats. Then, a few years ago, I started taking care of two needy strays that came to my property for food and water. I learned to love cats just like I have learned to love styles of music that I never thought I'd enjoy. I share Oprah's vision of a better world through extending ourselves and giving our time, our talents, our resources and our unconditional love to others. I also enjoyed learning about the centuries old Christmas markets in France and Germany. It would be delightful to visit those winter wonderlands someday. I love that pop hit by The Tee Set and have it embedded in a draft for use in a future post on SDMM.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  17. Entertaining gag, as usual. That grumpy cat is too funny. We have a grumpy cat and a baby grumpy in the back bedroom. My kitty does not like them and so goes in there and bats them down on the floor. :) That French market would be a fun place to visit. And it's older than I am!

    Have a great weekend!

  20. The cat video was fun. Cats some in so many shapes, sizes, and colors; but they all have that curiosity thing going on. I loved the one that seemed to have a permanent milk mustache.

  33. Linda,
    Lovely quotes on here today for the Christmas season, especially when things can be hectic and people get impatient with all the crowds. I just love Roald Dahl quotes, and this one is truly special. I also loved the music quote. Music can be so soothing to us. My son just started to play his guitar again, and that makes me so happy.

    Enjoy this wonderful Christmas season, Linda.
