Enthusiasm is contagious.  Go out each day smiling and start an epidemic.  :)

A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion. - Grantland Rice

I want to live a simple life without stress or worry.  I don't need a lot of stuff.  I just want to be happy.

I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear. - Martin Luther King

Look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion and up with gratitude. - Zig Ziglar

The worst bullies you will encounter are your thoughts.

Never let the opinions of others become the measure of your self worth.

Body love is about self-worth in general.  It's more than our physical appearance. - Mary Lambert

When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what's happening.

Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.

I may not be able to prevent life's storms...but at least I can walk through them in style!  :)

Be with someone who is good for your mental health.

Forgiveness is not an event.  It is a series of decisions made over and over again.

Sometimes life shakes you up to wake you up. Breathe and trust the process.

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. Bonjour Linda - Chaque fois que je viens visiter votre blog, je suis émerveillée par les quotes et vidéos. C'est vraiment chouette. J'aime tout particulièrement celle-ci "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."- Martin Luther King

  2. The grandma looks too young to be a grandma. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

    Adorable otter!

  3. Hello Linda,

    The most beautiful garden was really very beautiful!

  4. The horses with the snow is a real delight, such a great video.

  5. Good morning my wonderful lady and thank you for another 'medley of amusement and wisdom'!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead,
    I'm sending my warmest hug to you


    Xx Dany

  6. I remember the Mickey Mouse club when I was little (not the b/w version though). Thanks for your shares. Have a great weekend ahead.

  7. Most Beautiful Garden and Horses SnowBallFight are lovely Linda. I wish you a nice Friday.

  8. Enthusiasm is contagious! Great quotes as always.

  9. "Enthusiasm is contagious. Go out each day smiling and start an epidemic. :) a ma préférence Linda

  10. Excelentes vídeos, gostei bastante do Most Beautiful Garden, Canada.
    Um abraço e bom fim-de-semana.

  11. If a garden is that stunning in pictures, imagine how gorgeous that must be in person. Wow!
    Have a great weekend, Linda

  12. Hi Linda, I agree with your choice and your thoughts. Especially as we get some troubling news at the moment.

  13. Hello Linda, Wonderful post. I enjoyed the otter video. I just love the animals. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  14. Hello Linda, sending my Happy Friday Wishes to you.
    Isn't that garden video lovely, the colours so good ... and I liked the music accompaniment too.

    The Martin Luther King quote - a great choice - I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    All the best Jan

  15. I love the "enthusiasm is contagious" meme. It makes life so enjoyable!

  16. Grandma! Lovely heart warming video. Thank you

  17. Some super videos today, Linda. I laughed out loud at the Clydesdales having a snowball fight. Lots of great posters, too, which were very helpful. And that Canadian lush. Wishing you a wonderful day!

  18. Because I love horses I struggled to get the Budweiser Clydesdale Horses Snowball Fight to work eventually. One day they will speed up our internet! I loved it, so very cute. Have a great weekend Diane

  19. Aw. Such sweet videos today. That Budweiser one is one of my favorites.

  20. Very nice log, Linda !

  21. Hello Linda. Otter video is really awesome.

  22. I believe that life shakes you up to wake you up, if I can figure out what I was being too sleepy about...

  23. I'd heard the story of the grandma who invites the wrong person to dinner and after discovering he wasn't her grandson, asks him to come anyway. Heartwarming!

  24. I loved the story about the grandmother inviting a stranger for Thanksgiving. How cool is that.

    Loved the Budweiser commercial. I don't think anyone does better commercials.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend Linda. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  25. Wonderful videos enjoyed them all. Great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  26. Really love today's quotes - very encouraging! I try what's said in Higher Perspective. Sometimes you can't control things but you can definitely control how you respond to it with a right mindset.

  27. Hi Linda, That story about the grandmother who invited the wrong 'grandson' to Thanksgiving Dinner is all over the news here in the USA. It's a real 'feel good' story. Grandma ended up inviting his whole family so now she's cooking for 20!

    I wish that I had an otter for a friend. They are beautiful and smart plus they're fun to watch. As for the Mickey Mouse Club...those were true days of innocence!

    Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  28. Oh, toute cute l'annonce budwiser avec les chevaux hihihi... Bise, bon vendredi tout doux ma belle Linda!

  29. That last pic really speaks to me.

  30. OMG, this OTTER is sooooooo sweet! Thanks for sharing, dearest Linda!

    Hugs, Traude

  31. Linda yours videos always are amazing and lovely. Thanks by sharing !!
    Have a nice weekend !!

  32. Amazing videos today Linda! Loved the otter so much and the Mousketeers brought back memories! I was addicted to the program!! I was such a happy nerd. Lol. Thank you for sharing the happy times....

  33. That is a very nice young looking grandma. I love the video of the most beautiful garden in Canada. Have a great weekend, Linda!

  34. ... the otter video reminded me of how I found my cat Theo ... or better said, how he found me, friend L ... he is a healthy and handsome young "man" now and lives with me 24/7 ... Love, cat.

  35. Kauniita videoita varsinkin viimeinen,rakastan puutarhoja Myös kuvat ihania Kiitos paljon Hyvää lauantai päivää Ystävä Linda :)

  36. Good morning Linda!:) Thank you so much for the feel good videos and quotes. Just loved the trusting Otter and human friendship clip, and the horses were fun to watch. It's also heart warming to read about the kindness of strangers. Have a great day Linda, and thanks again.X

  37. Bonjour Linda,
    Hier impossible de laisser un commentaire.
    Merci pour tous tes posts. Budweiser fait toujours de très belles pub. J'adore.
    Belle fin de semaine. Bises de France

  38. Have a nice weekend.


  39. Os vídeos escolhidos são maravilhosas, o meu preferido é o mais belo jardim do Canadá.
    Gostei mais da primeira citação que fala do entusiasmo e de como é contagiante começar o dia sorrindo.
    Bom fim de semana com tudo de bom!!!
    ♫♪ه° ·.

  40. Hi Linda,mits true that we should let go of stress and worry and just be happy with what we have. It's also called contentment. Bon weekend!

  41. Esta semana no he seguido mucho los blog pero veo que nos sigues trayendo buenas historias y pensamientos.


  42. The wild otter is so cute, and the friend ship with the elderly man is heartwarming. The snow-ball fighting of the beautiful horses is fun to see. Thanks for sharing all the inspiring quotes as always.


  43. Linda,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave such a kind comment!!
    Beautiful post!!

  44. That is truly a warming post! I especially love the first and second video:)

  45. That Mesa Grandma may have entertained an angel unaware! Praise God for hospitality motivated by His love! Thank you for sharing these messages -- you are a blessing! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,

  46. Hi Linda. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Sunday. I like that advice about having an independent point of view. Following the crowd is not a good way to go.

  47. Hello Linda,
    Nice movies. The horses of Budweiser in the snow are fantastic. Great movie.

    Sweet greetings,

  48. Oh the Mickey Mouse Club!! Now that is stretching my memory. What fun!

  49. Hi Linda! For some reason, my computer wouldn't load the videos today :(. But, I really connected with the meme about the most negative things we will ever hear come from ourselves. Truth! Gotta keep silencing that negative voice.
    Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

  50. Thank you Linda! I hope you've had a great weekend! The first two videos warmed my heart! Big Hugs!

  51. Happy Sunday Linda. .. thank you for your sweet comment, it's not always easy to share when you're going through a tough time xox

    I love any quote my Martin Luther King Jr : I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. - Martin Luther King xox

  52. The horses video is so cute!
    'The worst bullies you will...' is really true!
    I love your true humor, beautiful, calm and happy :))
