Monday Medley

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

Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Streusel - Thanksgiving Dinner 2016

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.

I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. - Anne Frank


To truly ignite your passion, you have to be willing to take a risk.  Be it emotional, spiritual, mental or physical.  By opening yourself up to a new experience, you will find yourself.


Stop chasing the wrong one.  The right one won't run.


My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. - Maya Angelou


It feels so good to be in the presence of a tree or an animal, because it has no opinion about anyone, not even itself.  That space of no opinion, of love, is present in everyone.


You need to understand that life isn't what you're given, it's what you create, what you conquer and what you aim to achieve.


Listen to your heart...or it will find a million ways to remind you that something is missing.


Yes, time heals all wounds.  But if you want to speed up the healing, apply the salve of forgiveness.


Not the ones speaking the same language, but the ones sharing the same feeling understand each other. - Rumi


A soft nature of a person does not mean weakness. Remember, nothing is softer than water, but its force can break the strongest rock.


Let's let our problems unravel today...by looking at all the ways we're blessed.


Maybe he's born with it, maybe it's MEOWbelline. :)


Start where you are.  Use what you have.  Do what you can. - Arthur Ashe


Telling someone with a mental illness to snap out of it is like telling someone who is deaf to listen better.


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!

  1. I smiled reading "Stop chasing the wrong one. The right one won't run." Why is that so hard to learn?

  8. Good morning, Linda! I love the videos, especially the flower video. Wonderful words, inspiring quotes are needed lately. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  9. I love when the dog brings the fox a stick, so beautiful, and it just shows friendship works just as well when there are differences.
    The Reitmans advert is funny and memorable, so I guess it worked. I loved the flowers and laughed at Candid Camera. Thanks for another super collection Linda.
    PS I think the foot mouse is actually quite a good idea. Ir might need to be redesigned to fit the foot properly, but it would certainly free up both hands. I’m a touch typist so it would be a boon for me. :-)

  17. Beautiful sayings once again and although I tried to play the 10 flowers I could not get it to work for me :-( I see though a picture of a Flame Lily. It is my favourite flower as it was also the the national flower of Rhodesia and now Zimbabwe. Gloriosa superba is a protected plant there. Take care Diane

  18. I like the quote "You need to understand that life isn't what you're given, it's what you create, what you conquer and what you aim to achieve." This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Martha Washington about the greatest part of our happiness or misery depending on our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.

  19. Super posters today; my favorite had to do with the "salve of forgiveness." And the dog and fox, the computer mouse, the Reitman's ad - great fun. I've never had sweet potato casserole but it sure looks good!

  20. Awww fox and dog video really melted my heart :-) They are so cute together!

  22. I love this quote - My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.

  37. Flowers really are incredible parts of nature aren't they?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was trying to decide which of the flowers was my favourite!
    I've decided all of them are - they are so beautiful.

    Wishing you a good week ahead

    All the best Jan

  39. Some good lessons today, but I fear I need to debate the choice of the world's ten most beautiful flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Linda, Love the dog and the fox. That fox is so agile and quick. They really like each other! As for the flowers, its hard to beat a beautiful rose. We have roses and hydrangeas in our yard but with all of our deer we don't try to grow many flowers. I would like to see (but not smell) a corpse lily sometime. They grow to be a meter around and they can weigh up to 11 kilos! Hope that all is well... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  48. That was a heartwarming video about the dog and the fox. They looked like they had so much fun together. I enjoyed the Candid Camera video, too; but I'm not ready to try a foot mouse. Yikes!

  49. Hello Linda,
    Hier encore impossible de laisser un commentaire. Je suis venue 4 fois ...
    Bon, aujourd'hui j'y arrive.
    Merci pour tous tes posts et tes charmantes vidéos. C'est un plaisir. Belle journée à toi

    ReplyDelete
  50. El vídeo de zorro y el perro en un principio pensé que intentaba cazarlo. Quizás se criaron juntos por eso jugaban a perseguirse.
    Los pensamientos son unas fenomenales verdades.

    Saludos.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Muchas gracias Inda, precioso trabajo. Me encanta la Gloriosa, es una flor muy hermosa y el vídeo del zorrito y el perro es muy tierno. Un abrazo. Se feliz.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hi Linda! I watched the Reitman's video (it loaded, yay!!), and isn't that the model that Prince Harry is dating? She sure is pretty.
    The meme of what my mission in life should be is 100% inspiring. I'm going to post that on my Twitter account!
    Happy Thanksgiving my friend!
