Saturday Snow Shine

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

I am providing the link sources beneath each photo. You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Nothing is more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears.


The first thing you have to do if you want to raise nice kids is you have to talk to them like they are people instead of talking to them like they are property. - Frank Zappa



If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary. - Jim Rohn


Close enough.  :)


One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is thanking them for being part of your life.


So far, your record for getting through bad days is 100%.  Keep that in mind.


Breathe this in.  Feel it in your heart.  One day you'll be at the place you always wanted to be.


It's kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old.


The best thing you can give someone you love is not a thing.  It's your attention.  Yes.  It's even better than giving them chocolate.


When someone treats you badly, it's because they feel bad.  Don't inhale their bad feelings.  Breathe it out.  Then hope they inhale your peace.


If hugs were snowflakes I'm send you a blizzard.


It is not how many times you say, "I love you." It is how many times you prove that you do.






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!

  4. Love this one - "One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is thanking them for being part of your life." And I am feeling this - "It's kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old."

  15. Yea for Raphael. I really liked "Meanwhile in Canada." It's especially nice when folks can make fun of themselves. We've got all these morons running for office with no sense of humor and no ability to laugh at their own and their country's foibles. I also really enjoyed the reminder that somehow I've made it through 100% of the bad days! Thanks, too, for your very nice comment on Ocala.

  20. If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary. This is spot on. So many settle for so little.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  21. I agree with Frank Zappa's comment, but they also should be talked to like they're children, not friends.

  24. Notification
    I do not speak any other language, just Finnish.
    I always write these google translator and copy these text in the comments
    Sometimes it becomes too much text, so delete all unnecessary

  31. Sending you a blizzard of hugs, Linda! I am back, and my computer has been blessed by the Apple geniuses! When working with my third graders, I always reminded myself that they were unique human beings, worthy of being treated with respect and never to be talked down to. Their thoughts and feelings were always genuine. Loved that quote about children not being property! Have a lovely rest-of-the-day, my friend!

  33. Linda, I noticed that you have many quotes on here by Karen Salmansohn? They are delightful. Where did you find her quotes I'm wondering? I really like "the best thing you can give someone you love" and "breathe this in." I chuckled at the lights hanging from the house also.

    Happy New Year Linda! May it be a good one for me and you. :)

  34. Hi Linda. I was going through some old emails and found you had commented on my blog at http://piggywhistles.blogspot.com.au. way back in January 2015.

    When I looked up your profile I found we had a lot in common. I am 61, struggle with depression and also have osteoarthritis. I love the quotes you have put on this post. Thank you for commenting on my blog way back in January. I'm sorry I missed it. It was a bit of a turbulent time. By chance my brother is in Canada at the moment - in Montreal. I shall continue to follow your blog with great interest. Best wishes for the New Year , Lindy (Australia)

  35. The quote about talking to children is so right! We are models for their behaviour, so if we talk to them like they're property they too will talk to others this way.

  36. Ohh, i love these quotes! I noted some of these. :)

    Happy New Year! :)
