8 Ways to be Grateful and Lead a Better Life

Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.

Welcome to the land where you can get sunburn and frostbite in the same week.

Just because you're taking longer than others does not mean you're a failure.  Keep going.

If not for you, she'd never have known fresh air, wide open spaces, or the simple beauty of a flower.

Tips from the cat trainer:  Do not punish your cat!
That includes spraying your cat with water, shaker cans, hitting or yelling at your cat.  Not only will it cause your cat to distrust you but it can also lead to behavioral problems such as fear aggression.

When we celebrate the indiscriminate killing of wildlife, when we exchange prizes for lives, we're assigning a value to life that takes away a precious piece of our humanity. - Phil Carter, Animal Protection Voters

Hearing the words "I miss you" from the right person is an amazing feeling.

What are the most powerful words in the universe? The ones you use to talk to yourself.

Big secret to happiness:  work on becoming more self-aware.  Explore your part in your patterns.  You have to own up to your limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging habits, so you can disown them.

We all rejoice in hearing those 3 words "I love you." Beneath these 3 words are another 3: "I get you." It's when we feel understood that we feel most loved.

A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well.

Sometimes you have to just hang on and trust that life's storms are carrying you to better shores.

    Merci Linda !

    C'est un beau post ! J'adore !

    GROS BISOUS et bon samedi !

  2. Wishing you a happy weekend!! Speaking of candy corn - my grand quads loved the candy corn I kept in a crystal dish on the living room coffee table all fall. They missed it when they were here Wednesday so I brought it back out! Today I found CHRISTMAS candy corn in the red/green/white color combination! Win! WIN!!

  3. Wonderful post. Have a nice weekend:)

  4. Thanks for you turnip tips Linda! Referring to Jamie's stuffing recipe - sometimes I think the stuffing is yummier than the bird. :-)

  5. KC and the Sunshine Band, Please Don't Go...

  6. I've laughed watching the video about the bride always falling into the water ( what funny expressions were depicted on the faces of those leading her to the priest and the guests !!!! ) and I'm still amazed by the great amount of people which were in New York already in 1930 ... it's incredible !

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful quotes, have a blessed end of the week, thank you with all my heart, my darling, sweetest Linda,

    Jamie's Perfect Christmas Stuffing, look delicious Linda. I wish you and nice weekend

  8. Kiitos Linda Kauniita kaikki Terveisiä :)

  9. Linda, can you really get frostbite and sunburn in the one week?

  10. belle l'affiche pour la protection du loup!
    passe un bon we bisous

  11. christmas stuffings are the best ... one of the most delicious things to imagine eating this season :)

  12. That is a very elaborate gag, but very funny, too. Weddings are scary as there are so many possibilities for things to go wrong and everyone's uptight and nervous. I did some wedding photography years ago and that was just too stressful in that in many cases it was impossible to meet the expectations of those involved.

  13. A cute gag video. Enjoyed all the other videos. Great quotes. Have a blessed day my friend. Madeline

  14. Hum qu'il a l'air bon ce Christmas stuffing!!! Bise et bon week-end dans la joie!

  15. Very good, Linda, the gag !

  16. Snowshine is a delightful word I am so glad to have learned it! Thank you Linda :)

  17. Oh that gag. The looks on their faces.

    All those people in N.Y. Christmas shopping. Count me out.

    Love the music video. That was one of my favorite songs back in the day.

    Have a fabulous weekend Linda. ☺

  18. No snow yet for us here in Toronto. Enjoy the weekend!

  19. Maybe the crowds were actually worse back then?!

  20. Sunburn and frostbite, or cuteness overload... not sure which I like more!

  21. Linda, the diamonds quote caught my eye right away. I was never really into diamonds much. I use my hands often for working and gardening, and diamonds would just get in the way hehehe. I love that last song - it's very upbeat and one of my favorites back in the day. :)

    Have a splendid weekend, my friend. (I didn't know that about Canada - that the weather changes frequently).


  22. Oh I loved KC and the Sunshine Band when I was a kid!!

  23. KC and the Sunshine Band! Those were the days. :-)

    Greetings from London.

  24. I've tried several of Jamie's recipes & they're always good! So many great sayings today, Linda, especially the diamond & candy corn fun!
    Happy weekend!

  25. I wasn't expecting there to be so many shoppers in the 1930s video. That was crazy and so interesting to see everyone with their fancy hats too. :) Great inspirational quotes! Thanks for sharing.

  26. Spraying the cat with water would be the only way they got my in-laws old cat to behave. But you only had to put point it at him. He'd get the message.

    The new one doesn't hate water for some reason.

  27. The stuffing looks really tasty :)

  28. When I was in junior high school I used to LOVE KC and the Sunshine band. Thanks for the memories.

  29. Thanks for the laughs and the smiles!

  30. Love the gag, Linda. The saying about Canada...sunburn and frostbite in the same week...could sometimes be said of my own state of Indiana. :)
