Monday Magic

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

Reitmans Boat (Reitmans is a Canadian women's clothing retailer and this is one of their funny TV ads from the past).  :)

Fountain Birds

Dutch Clog Dance/Wooden Shoes - Andre Rieu

A Medical Miracle Gives New Life to this Amazing Bionic Dog!


Josh Turner's Grandma in-law, Lois Cunningham, (98 years old!) "How Great Thou Art" Live at the Grand Ole Opry - she receives a standing ovation!  :)


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.

Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is. - Mandy Hale


We can all feel a little damaged sometimes...but remember, a broken crayon can draw just as colorfully as a whole crayon.


"Love yourself to health."  When you don't know what else to do, focus on love.  Loving yourself makes you feel good and good health is really about feeling good. - Louise Hay


I love cats because I enjoy my home;  and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau


Kindness is not to be mistaken for weakness nor forgiveness for acceptance.  It's about knowing that resentment is not on the path to happiness. Remember, you don't forgive people because you're weak.  You forgive them because you're strong enough to know that people make mistakes.


Old habits die hard.  :)


When something bad happens you have 3 choices:
1.  Let it define you.
2.  Let it destroy you.
3.  Let it strengthen you.


Repeat after me...I am grateful for all I have.


If you want improved relationships, improve your health.  You have more to give others when you feel energetic, peaceful, focused and comfortable in your skin.


Tea is for Tranquility.  Angry at someone?  Before you speak or act out, cool down your anger by making a nice cup of herbal tea.  Sip slowly.  Inhale the aroma. This simple ritual will help you regain your composure so you respond from the heart.










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!

  31. You got me with the Catington Post, and also the bionic dog and the 98-year old grandmother! Wow! Hope you're doing well, and I wish you a great week ahead!

  32. Brilliant video of the birds. All we seem to get here is re-runs of Yellowstone Park, Bison and Moose for the last 40 years. You never get nature programmes here featuring any of the smaller animals and bird life in Canada and the USA, most of which would be completely unknown to UK residents. I wish they would show more of the smaller creatures in North America.

  33. Linda, what a nice quote about the tea. And I think that's true. There's just something about a nice cup of hot tea that soothes us. :) I love the "broken crayon" quote too. I've always loved coloring, and still have Nel's crayons from grade school.

    Those birds at the fountain sure had a fun time getting wet. The video was sweet.

    Have a wonderful week, Linda.

  34. Hi Linda. The bionic dog is simply amazing. What a hero. I like the sandman too, I must try that on the beach.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Linda, the Reitmans advert made me laugh but oh that poor little dog – how funny. I could watch the birds in the fountain for hours, so sweet. Thanks for sharing all these, have a lovely week.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Funny commercial! I mean who wears high heels in that setting, then again I've seen a lot of people wearing attires inappropriate to the event or location in our travels. I've seen about the bionic dog on my FB feed.

    And amen to that quote about broken crayons! Have a lovely week Linda!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh that beautiful bionic dog...isn't he amazing?!!
    And these wonderfully inspiring quotes...they never fail to inspire me and lift my spirits!
    Thank you so much...:))

    Big Hugs xoxoxo

  38. LINDA! That was a joyous video of the Dutch clogging; I have a very special friend in the Netherlands and I long to visit her and her country. I tried to dance once in a pair of clogs and literally fell forward..TIMBER!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you so much for coming to visit and to see the interview. She did a marvelous layout!

  39. Hi Linda! It's wonderful to be home and to come back to your blog. I think a lot of stores should go back to clothes for real life! Loved the ad. Loved all the videos ~ but the bionic dog takes the prize. And so does the Canadian snowman! LOL Jackie Dowell-Irving's art captures the North so beautifully! thanks for bringing joy into my heart this morning! Have a great day, my special friend!

  42. Hi Linda, a wonderful choice of videos. The birds at the fountain was so peaceful, the one of the dog with his four prosthetic legs really touched me, and the others very enjoyable. And I always enjoy the wise words chosen along with the illustrations. Very uplifting. Thanks again my friend :)
