Weekend Serenity

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

Hoopoe Feeding its Young in Slow Motion

Mr. Bean - Bully Revenge

Bluebells of Scotland by Leroy Anderson

Sometimes our Darkest Hours can Actually be our Finest

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.

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results. - Willie Nelson


It is the little things that usually have the greatest impact in life...a smile, a hug, a flower, a thank you, a compliment.


You become a light by doing the things that spark the light in you.


Life is like photography.  You use the negative to develop.


Sometimes you just need to hear someone whisper the words I believe in you when you think you can't get through.  So I am here to remind you I believe in you!


You can't go back and change the past.  So look to the future and don't make the same mistake twice.


Be kind...but with spine.


Make sure your worst enemy is not living between your ears. - Laird Hamilton


It's time to embrace what is...and let go of what you wanted to happen.


Change is a slow process.  Giving up makes it even slower.  Be patient.


Don't be afraid to lose what was not meant to be.


Being angry at someone is easier than telling them that they hurt you.

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!

  22. One can't resist Mr. Bean, though if he was a real person as opposed to a comedic creation, you might want to kill him!

  40. Hello, my friend! So glad to see your post, I've been busy with the start up of all the classes I teach and getting my son off to college (locally, thank goodness!).

    That poor sheep! I used to raise goats and I can't imagine the neglect that had to occur for its hooves to look that bad. Thank God for the kindness of those sweet people.

    Love and hugs!
