Weekend Thoughts

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

Cute Kitten Escapes Cage to Play with Puppy

Fruit Salad Popsicle

Non-Profit Matches Veterans with Therapy Dogs for Life Changing Support

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.

Happy new possibilities day.


A child with autism is different, not less.  And a huge thing they share in common with everybody...is a love for love!  Please look at autism with your heart...because your eyes might miss something.


Happy are those who take life day by day, and are thankful for the little things.


Don't worry if someone does not like you.  Most people are struggling to like themselves.


When you accept yourself exactly as you are, you shine.


When I accept myself, I am freed from the burden of needing you to accept me. - Dr. Steve Maraboli


If someone won't lift a finger to call you or spend time with you...then it's time for you to lift five fingers and wave goodbye.


No, you won't always get exactly what you want, but remember this:  there are lot of people who will never have what you have right now.  The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for. Happiness never comes to those who don't appreciate what they already have.


I need them to be present with me in the storm, not just tell me what to do.


Recovery:  It will be challenging.  It will also be worth it.  You will relapse, and that's O.K., as long as you keep fighting.






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!

  10. Hi Linda, the cute kitten makes the puppy so happy when it joined the puppy in its cage. It is a very smart kitty. I am going to make the healthy fruit popsicle too! I also enjoyed the dog video because I love dogs.

  11. Good Morning, Linda! WONDERFUL encouragement today (as always). Sometimes each message speaks a bit more to me than other days - probably my outlook, but especially today, each little tidbit seems to mesh with the other for a delightfully cohesive message. The kitty struggling to get to the puppy, the reminder that we are so blessed and to be grateful for who and what we are, be content with what we have, that when we fully accept ourselves, it is easier to accept others, become aware of others, and to be our real selves around them. Thank you so much! Hope you are having a good day and that you enjoy a wonderful weekend! hugs, de

  28. Hi, Linda! I hope that you are enjoying a great Friday evening, Loved the videos, especially the one on dogs working with vets who have PTSD! Dogs are just the most amazing animals.

  46. Por un error en lugar de publicar mi comentario que hice anteriormente di a que notificarían por email, que ya creo subsanado ahora con el ordenador. El error fue con la tablet ya que estuve fuera unos días.
    Sobre tu entrada decir que me gusto mucho en especial el gatito y el perrito en muchas ocasiones si se crían juntos son como hermanos, lo se por experiencia ya que he tenido de las dos cosas e incluso el gato quitar de comer al perro.

    Saludos.
