Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

Aunt Bee Sings for her Sanka

Beautiful Water Candles

Catahoula Puppies

Decorate Candles with Paper Napkins

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.

It's okay to be angry.  It's not okay to be cruel.

Once you learn how to be happy, you won't tolerate being around anybody who makes you feel anything less.

In each of us there is a little of all of us.

If you're suffering from a bad case of grumpiness, the best cure is love.  Make a call, exchange a text, snag a hug.  If it doesn't work, increase the dosage.

The most exhilarating achievement:  breaking a bad habit.

We can't always choose the music life plays for us...but we can choose how we dance to it.

A champion is someone who gets up even when they cannot.

A reason you might not be losing weight:  you need to drink more water.  Water fills you up, so you're less hungry,  Plus, it speeds up metabolism.

Appreciate people who can see the sorrow behind your smile, the love behind your anger, and the reason behind your silence.

Your mission:  may you continue to shine no matter the storms you have been through.

Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. - Napoleon Hill

How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.

If they made a monster out of you because you walked away from their drama, so be it!  Let them deal with what they have created.  Be at peace with yourself and stay out of the conflict. - Dodinsky

Love the people who saw you when you were invisible to everyone else.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

    There is nothing like my childhood-Time

  13. Good morning, I love puppies. The water candles are neat. Great quotes. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  14. Bonjour Linda,
    J'ai bien aimé les 2 vidéos avec les bougies, c'est beau!!



  15. Loved the Sanka coffee commercial with Aunt Bea and Andy. Those puppies were so cute. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  16. That last quote particularly appeals to me.

  17. Lots of good quotes today, but I especially like the one "it's ok to be angry but it's not ok to be cruel." Certain Republicans running for president need to heed this advice....

  18. Love those DIY candles. I'd love to try making some myself. It would be a fun craft project :-)

  19. I always love the quotes you post, Linda:) Just inspiring.
    Hope you're having a lovely Thursday so far.

  20. Like those water candle. I have seen ice candles that look pretty neat too. Great choices today :)

  21. coucou ici soleil la journée et pas de gel , une belle journée j'en ai profité pour bosser dehors

  22. I've enjoyed Aunt Bee so very much, i don't know your advertising, and to know your culture better it's such a joy to me, even if I do it with vintage videos !
    Your qutes are always ... unbeatable !
    Thank you for having brighten my evening, my darling, so precious Linda !!!
    Have a most beautiful afternoon and evening, sweetie !
    With so much love and all my heart

  23. Sanka. That was some nasty coffee.

    Loved the puppies.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  24. la dernière citation me plaît beaucoup Linda


  25. Love the one about the music we can choose to dance to!

  26. Oh, that Aunt Bee singing for her coffee made me smile. I used to watch The Andy Griffith show; still watch some of the reruns. How cool are those decorated candles. They're so pretty. The girls have craft night sometimes and this would be a nice project for them.

    Have a sweet Thursday afternoon, Linda.


  27. Coucou Linda,
    Toujours des posts agréables et intéressants. j'aime beaucoup. Belle fin de journée

  28. Love all your films! Aggie

  29. Puppies!!! Golly, they are great.
    Lots of stuff to lift a person UP!!!!! Thank you.


  30. j'ai bien aimé cette citation Linda:
    In each of us there is a little of all of us.

    c'est pour cela que nous comprenons les autres, leurs actions, leurs motivations, et même ce qu'ils veulent cacher !

  31. Sanka... gosh, I haven't heard that name in a LONG time. Love Aunt Bee :)


  32. Thanks for the fabulous pick-me-ups, Linda! Very meaningful, as though they were chosen just for me! Hope your evening is pleasant. Hugs, de

  33. I've always kind of identified with Aunt Bea. But I like my caffeine. Great clip. Brought a smile to my face.

  34. How are you, my friend Linda?
    As usual in me, the first thing is to apologize for my tardiness in sight, but the situation sends and difficulties in finding time seems on the rise despite my fondness for blogs.
    It is a great pleasure to visit your space back and contemplate your magnificent publications, so I am grateful for the opportunity you give us to enjoy them.

    Regards and see you soon.

  35. Bonjour Linda, c'est cool les chandelles à l'eau! Bise et bon vendredi dans la joie!

  36. I like the 'treatment' for feeling down, and the recommendation to 'increase the dosage'. :-)

  37. Gotta try those candles.
    Lovely quotes. :)

  38. Linda, I can't tell you how much I love Andy Griffith. Ever since they put it on Netflix, I watch it all the time now. It sure brings back memories. I also enjoyed the tutorials for the printed candles and water candles. That was pretty cool... :)
