Whimsical Wednesday and a Reminder

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I mentioned this a while back but will mention it again for those who may not have seen it.  I will continue posting throughout Christmas and the New Year, but I will be posting only images and quotations.  The videos will resume after the New Year.  Thank you so much for your support and understanding.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Little Kittens Meowing and Talking

Christmas is a Wonderful Time to Visit the Dingle Peninsula

Honesty by Billy Joel (with lyrics) (I will be honest, I am not a huge Billy Joel fan but I love this song!) :)

What we can Learn from Animals

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.

Tempted?  Stop thinking about how you're missing out on burgers, fries and cake.  Start thinking about how you're missing out on high cholesterol, diabetes and sugar spikes followed by mood and energy plummets.

Smile.  Be happy.  Whatever's happening...nothing sucks forever.

You don't ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life.  It doesn't matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend or a new acquaintance. You don't have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It's one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change.  But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries and "continues" to treat you in a harmful way...they need to go. - Daniell Koepke

A long laugh and a good sleep are the 2 best cures for anything. - Irish Proverb

The first step to living a life on purpose is just showing up. - Sherri Bishop

Generosity is the key to unlocking true joy.

You don't need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of.

Some people look for faults in others like there was a reward for it.

See the glass as already broken;  see everything else as broken, too.

All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride. - Sophocles Antigone

Not all wounds are so obvious.  Walk gently in the lives of others. - Unknown

Sending extra peace and love out into the world.

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!

    Little kitten is so sweet Linda! I wish you a great day.

  11. Loved the "nothing sucks forever". So true, but hard to remember when you're going through something"sucky"!
    Merry Christmas, Linda

  12. I think one of the reasons why so many people get bitter is because of the lack of sleep. I try to make sure I get 7 hours minimum

  13. One has to watch out for aggressive stuffed dogs! :) Cute. I really enjoyed the quotes this morning; there was one that was particularly helpful.

    It's unusually warm here also. 72 degrees this morning. I'm off to the golf course and it's supposed to get to 85 degrees by afternoon - just like summer!

    I hope you have a very enjoyable day.

  14. Merry Christmas to you!!

  15. Good morning, I just love all the animals, even the cute stuffed dog video. I would love to visit the Dingle Peninsula. Wonderful quotes. Thanks for sharing. Happy Wednesday.

  16. I love the second video ! So sweet !!
    Linda, I wish you a Merry Christmas !!

  17. Merci pour tous tes beaux posts très variés. Merci pour ta gentillesse et ta générosité.
    Je te souhaite un doux Noël

  18. Cute li'l kittens! Merry Christmas Linda!

  19. Wonderful quotes & inspirations today, Linda! Happy holidays to you & family! xoxo

  20. Hi, dear Linda!

    This was a terrific post filled with animals. It was nice to see the gag video "A Team" back in action playing a good natured prank on dogs in the park. The puppeteer had a knack for imitating the motion and sounds of a real dog and it was fun to watch the reactions of different breeds. The Beagle puppy seemed bravest of all and approached to chew the bone with the puppet dog. I loved the kitten video with the natural sound of meowing - no music required. Who cannot love an innocent kitten? How can some people say, "It's only a cat" or "It's only a dog"? Every life is precious. Every life matters. Mrs. Shady is part Irish and we would enjoy visiting Dingle Peninsula, "the westernmost point of Ireland and arguably Europe," according to Wiki. "What we can learn from animals" is one of the greatest and most important pieces you have ever posted. As the narrator reminded us, animals and children are always present if we allow them to be. You and I can also choose to "be here now" and not drag the baggage of the past along with us moment by moment. Take a lesson from that frolicking horse. Live free and stay in the present.

    Thank you very much, dear Linda!

  21. je te souhaite une douce journée
    ici temps sec mais ça reste un ciel gris

  23. I laughed a lot, Linda. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  24. Merry Christmas, Linda! I laughed out loud at the "bae shrimp" picture. :P

  25. Hello, Linda.

      Lovely your works, full of joy.

      Thank you World-wide LOVE, and your Support in this year.
      The prayer for all peace.

    Merry Christmas, and A happy New Year for you and yours.

  39. Seen the gag video before but it is always amusing.
    Enjoyed the song by Billy Joel. The other videos were great. Great quotes. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

  40. A good laugh and a long sleep cure anything. I'm embracing that because I love to sleep. Retirement is so wonderful; I can take a nap mid-day! Merry Christmas, my friend. May it be a truly grand event!
