Weekend Post

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

The Syncopated Clock - Leroy Anderson and His Pops Concert Orchestra (1951)

Unique Friendship Between Lioness and Baby Baboon

Forgotten Dreams - Leroy Anderson

Henri - Le Kickstarter


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.

Sometimes you can feel your broken places mending with just a simple hug.


Live life happy:  be dynamic, just like life. Innovative. Create.  Explore.  Never become stagnant. 


If you have nothing to be grateful for, check your pulse.


To make a difference in someone's life you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect.  You just have to care. - Mandy Hale


Happiness doesn't come from attaining luxuries.  It comes from attaining inner peace.


Please try not to judge how someone is dealing with a pain which you have not experienced.


It is time to let go of the people and things which are hurting you - even if it hurts you to let go.


People make time for who they want to make time for.  People text, call and reply to those they want to talk to.  Never believe anyone who says they're too busy.  Never force anyone to make time for you. Remember:  it's not about having time, it's about making time.










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!

  15. I really found relief in looking at the video of the peaceful gardens ~ especially with the horrific event in Nice yesterday. And Henri made me laugh ~ which is good, because we can't give in to terrorists trying to fundamentally change our way of life.

    Two of the quotes really hit me. The first is about pain, and it's so true. My first husband, who was a quadriplegic, suffered with terrible flareups of pain in his body, even though he couldn't feel his body. He taught me a whole lot about living with pain. Everyone experiences physical pain differently, and sometimes emotional pain also impacts us physically. Having experienced both types of pain forcefully, I try to treat others in pain with compassion,

    The second quote was about making time for people. That made me stop and really think, because I've let a lot of more important things slip through the cracks this year. And you're right; it is a choice, conscious or not. So I wonder why I am so driven by by certain responsibilities and events to the exclusion of others which are really the important ones?

    Have a lovely weekend, my dear friend Linda!

  16. Leroy Anderson was a favorite of ours when we were first married! I really appreciated those videos. And the cat is charming but I'm not going to buy his books. Sheesh! Lots of good posters, too and the last painting by Raphael is mesmerizing!

  17. Love the video of lioness and baboon. So cute :-)
    And I love the art works by Jackie Dowell-Irvine. Especially the flowers - they are very pretty.

  27. Loved the Forgotten Dreams video. Made me want to visit some nice walled gardens but there's very few left up here in our public parks after years of government cutbacks and bad behaviour.

  28. "If you have nothing to be grateful for, check your pulse." Love it!

  39. The friendship between the baboon and lioness is so touching.mits true that those who want to spend time with you will welcome you with open arms. Can't force it. It all has to be natural.

  40. It shows that friendship also knows no limits. Let's learn from this.

  51. Wise and wonderful reminders across the board, dear Linda. I was especially struck by the message regarding checking one's pulse as a point to be grateful. I think that's a message that we, as a society, should instill in children at a very young age. So long as one is alive, there is always a great deal to be grateful for and to count amongst our blessings.

    Many hugs & happy Sunday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
