Monday Moments

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

Dog and Cows Become Friends

Candid Camera Classic:  Hydrant on Your Lawn

Owl Missed the Man who Saved Her so Much She Couldn't Stop Hugging Him

The Best Boogie Woogie Piano at Heathrow Airport

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.

Mental Health - Let's talk about it.


The hardest part about recovery is when you're not so sure you want to recover.


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


Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.


Pain and suffering are the soil of strength and courage.


What is this so called "8 hours of sleep" everyone talks about?  :)


Wounds don't heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to.  It takes time for wounds to fade to scars.  It takes time for the process of healing to take place.  Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace.  Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart.  You deserve to heal. - Unknown


For most people, being angry is just a bodyguard for sadness.


Stop resisting life.  Nothing is for nothing.  You are exactly where you are meant to be this very moment.


Every time you feel yourself being pulled into other people's nonsense, repeat these words:  "Not my circus, not my monkeys." - Polish Proverb  :)






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!

  9. What a super post, Linda! Thanks for sharing these wonderful videos and the wonderful posters. I loved them all, although the owl hugging its "savior" is very moving and one of my favorites. The fire hydrant is too funny! And Salmansohn comes through again. Wishing you the best Monday ever!

  15. Thanks for sharing all the peaceful pieces. Dogs and cows never mixed on our farm. Love the owl and his need to stay close. All things you share are so encouraging. Sometimes being transparent is not such a bad think when one becomes so much on demand from others. Have a good week.

  16. Another wonderful post, Linda! That boogie woogie is going to be running through my head all day. I loved it! I enjoyed all the videos, especially Gigi giving her caretaker a feathery hug! The "eight hours of sleep" image had me laughing, because it's so rare in my life. I'm lucky if I can get five hours of sleep. Last night was the first night in the last month that I actually got eight hours of sleep, and I am so grateful!

    Have a happy Monday and a great week, dear friend! Sending you a big hug!

  25. Hi, Linda! I hope your Canada Day celebration and remembrance was full of gratitude. thanks for the fun video with the dog and cows! Our big dog was a black Belgian Shepherd. He would stay on one side of the fence, and the cows would turn their heads side-ways to let him CLEAN THEIR EARS! He would lick each ear on each cow, inside and out, to keep them all clean. How sweet is that? Take care, dear friend. hugs, de

  33. Hope your Canada day was wonderful!
    Such good info today about mental health and healing. It's something that has been largely ignored here in the US since 1980 when Reagan was elected President, he discarded a law proposed by his predecessor that would have continued funding federal community mental health centers. This basically eliminated services for people struggling with mental illness. He had already done something similar when he was Gov of California. I'm not saying that is the whole problem but defunding all sorts of programs continues in this country. Maybe that's why we have so many angry-sad people today.
