Strength grows in the moments when you think you can't go on, but you keep going anyway.

You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself. - Harvey S. Firestone

Take a stand and put some power behind your dreams! - Sherri Bishop

Ancient Canadian toast - may the only ice you encounter be in your drink!

Stop late night eating.  Not only to watch your weight, but also to reduce the risk of acid reflux, sleep apnea and even sinusitis.

Being different is a good thing.  It means you're brave enough to be yourself.

It's upsetting to think one day the people we love won't be here on this planet.  Appreciate your loved ones while you can, because none of us are here forever.

I won't back down.  No, I won't back down.  You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won't back down.  I'll stand my ground.  Won't be turned around. I'll keep this world from dragging me down. Going to stand my ground. - Tom Petty

Please be gentle with yourself. You're doing the best you can.

True friends say good things behind your back and bad things to your face.

What's up, buttercup?

The voice in your head is something you are watching, it's not something that you you are watching, see if what that voice is saying is really helpful or is it just a neurotic voice talking in your head. - Michael Singer

There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.

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!


  1. Linda, thank you for your sweet visit. You have gathered some really good quotes here. I especially like the one about being different. I also love the cat one. That's so true. Merry Christmas xoxo Su

  2. Good morning, dear Linda!

    The armless woman who paints with her feet is indeed an inspiration, reminding us to live up to our potential. I was touched to hear her young son speak such kind words about his mother and the quality of her artwork. Alvin and the Chipmunks were climbing the chart with their novelty number "Christmas Don't Be Late" in December 1958. At Christmas time 1969, Diana Ross & the Supremes were on their way to #1 with "Someday We'll Be Together," one of my favorites by that Motown super girl group. My favorite video in this post was the one profiling the girl who spreads kindness in memory of her father. Both of those young women are outstanding representatives of the younger generation. What they said at the end of the piece is true:

    Being kind can change someone's life.
    It can also change the world.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

    Bonjour Linda !

    Oh ! Que c'est beau !
    J'aime beaucoup écouter Diana Ross

    BISES et bonne continuation !

  4. Oooo...the Chipmunks - my favourite Christmas song when I was a kid. We had that on vinyl record and played it non-stop on the turntable/record player. I guess the young ones these days would not know what I am talking about.

  5. Diana Ross on ne l'entend plus même à la radio nostalgie
    belle la geisha
    bisous et douce journée

  6. Just returned from a trip ... and ... ya ... had a heart warming welcome from Theo ... in fact, from now on, he decided to sleep on me ... and won't let me go anywhere by myself (not even the loo ...) smiles ... sweet purrs and much love, friend L ... cat.

  24. Once again your choice of video and quotes are great. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  25. Lots of fun things today, Linda. The Chipmunk song brings back memories. My niece drives a bus that takes disabled people to appointments and such. Recently, she was taking a group of mentally disabled people to a Christmas program in another town. As they traveled, she played Christmas music for them She said, when "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" came on, the entire busload, which had been quiet until then, started singing along with it. :)

  26. That Canadian toast suits me nicely!

  27. Nice post. What a sweet girl to start the kind-club.
    Love the True Friends Say quote--LOL!
    Have a great rest of the week. :)

  28. Great selection..I can do without the Chipmunks :) The Supremes were great..Have a nice evening.

  29. Bonjour Linda, elle fait des merveilles avec ses pieds, c'est super! Bise et bon jeudi dans la joie!

  30. Happy Wednesday evening, Linda! I hope you had a great day! Terry just finished his supper (left over c. c. pie and said, "You've got to make this again!" So I have a huge smile on my face because of you. Very important words to take to heart: "Appreciate your loved ones while you can, because none of us are here forever." The harsh voices in my head didn't quiet until I went on anti-anxiety medication. It changed my life! Once in a while they start in again, but I can now get on top of them. Being gentle with yourself is one of the most important things you can do. Thank you for always sharing upbeat and inspiring messages. Sending you big hugs!

  31. Hi Linda,

    I love the 'true friends' quote; it is SO true, isn't it? I respect a friend who is not afraid to disagree with me or express her honest opinion about something that perhaps we don't see eye to eye on. After all, we're friends, not the same person!

    Happy Holidays, my friend!


  32. Lots of great advice here!

  33. I love the quote about being different. It's a great thing to be yourself and to love being yourself!

  34. Good morning, Linda

    Used to have Alving and the Chipmunks fever earlier this month but starting today will be having STarwars fever...LOL

  35. Hope your day is going well. Cheers and boogie boogie.

  36. Bonjour chère Linda,

    Que du bonheur ! Quel travail pour organiser de tels billets !

    Gros bisous ☃

  37. love the one about strength being going on- some days that is really all you can do- is put one foot in front of the other.
