Mid-Week Refresh

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

Mr. Bean - Eating Sweets in Church

Donkey Assisted Therapy Shines at Romanian Orphanage

1950's Lux Beauty Bar Commercial

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.

One kind word can change someone's entire day. - The Golden Rule


Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.


When faced with senseless drama, spite criticisms and misguided opinions, walking away is the best way to stand up for yourself.  To respond with anger is an endorsement of their attitude. - Dodinsky


Life was meant for good friends and great adventures.


Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.


As you get older you will understand more and more that it's not about what you look like or what you own, it's all about the person you've become.


Yes...it's going to be o.k.  You are going to make it through this.  Stay positive and strong...keep looking for the bright side...and always...keep going.


Don't be afraid to start over.  It's a chance to build something better this time.


Just pause for a moment and really appreciate all the good in your life.


There's always something to be grateful for and something good coming. (Please remember that!)


We must find a way to forgive, simply because being angry robs us of our happiness.


Your mission:  feel good about who you are.  What you do.  How you think and how you look - without needing anybody's approval!


The secret to overnight success:  everyday positivity and everyday action.


Wanted for cuteness overload $100,000.  :)


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!

  5. bien jolie la danse allemande Linda!
    je trouve qu'on devrait faire la collection de mots gentils et avoir un bout de papier dans sa poche au cas où on voudrait les distribuer pour faire le bonheur de la journée de quelqu'un, c'est que des fois on les oublie et c'est dommage !
    bisous

  16. Thank you so much for the lovely videos. I was really touched by the donkeys and children. Donkeys are such lovely, loving animals and often don't have the best of lives. It was so nice to see how their relationship strengthened all involved. Xx
