Mid-Week Jewels

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

Dolphins Help Young Seal

The Jerusalem Light Rail

Cat Purrdictions (predictions) for 2017  :)

Chinese Almond Tea (Thirsty for)



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.

5 mins.  Turn right at moose  :)

Don't worry about what people think.  They don't do it very often. :)


Live in the present.


We will weather life's storms together.


Today, take time to think about all that can be!


At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built;  not what we got, but what we shared;  not our competence, but our character; and not our success, but our significance.  Live a life that matters.  Live a life of love.


A little nap can do wonders when you have a tired twinkle!  :)


You're never too old to believe in the magic of Christmas...and unicorns.  :)


Move in the direction of your dreams in 2017...even if it's just a little waddle.  :)


Don't be afraid to start over.  It gives you a chance to build something even better.


In 2017, treat people exactly how you want to be treated.  If we all did this, could you imagine what the world would be like next year?


Choose people who choose you.


Not everyone you lose is a loss.


Only the weak are cruel.  Gentleness can only be expected from the strong. - Leo Buscaglia


A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.



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!

  6. Ha-I chuckled at the Pessimist/Optimist one---hubby is definitely a pessimist. I'm the optimist. We actually work very well together, because sometimes I tend to ONLY see the UP side of stuff, and he'll show me it isn't ALL good. Comes in handy for purchases, etc.
    Hope your week is going well, Linda.
    :)

  10. Good day Linda, I hope you are enjoying your day. Gee, I sure miss our Tim Horton's that left this area over a year ago, probably more like two years ago now. I lose track of time, it goes so quickly.

  14. Good morning, Linda! Being a cat lover, I loved Catpurdictions for 2017! And the Canadian sign - I laughed out loud at that. Also, I have copied a couple of the posters to print out so I can look at them again and again. You make blogging a pleasure! Have a super day today!

  29. Oh yes, I believe in the magic of Christmas and unicorns, Linda; also Santa whose reindeer I hear and the tooth fairy whom I saw!!! The Tim Horton's sign was so very Canadian, including the winter weather behind the sign! LOL 2017 is the year for me to move ahead with my dreams. I hope it will be the same for you, Linda! Sending you lots of hugs and love!

  33. Thank you for educating me about the Jerusalem light rail. Loved it. Seeing those open markets brought back beautiful memories for me....of eating delicious foods! And that super cold pic of the restaurant in Canada..shivering!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi LInda! Oh my gosh, that one meme about not worrying about what others think, that was so funny! You have some real smile inducing images here. I think that's what I like about your blog my friend. It always makes me smile.
    Blessings,
    Ceil

  35. Linda, I hadn't seen that one with the seal and the dolphins. Very cool! I wish more US cities had light rail systems like they do in Jerusalem. Never heard of Chinese Almond Tea but my better half, who currently has a cold, would sure like a cup of it! I like the saying that "Not everyone you lose is a loss". Amen to that! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  36. The Chinese Almond tea is interesting. I have not tried it. I might make some to try. Have a wonderful day!

  37. Those 'meanwhile in Canada' signs crack me up - every single one.

  46. No favourites today they are all great sayings. You amaze me where you find all of these. Wish I could watch the videos I love dolphins. I have always wanted to swim with them but guess it will never happen now! Take care Diane

  47. Your post made me smile.Your blog is so different - now I wonder how you came to mine! Thanks for the visit!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi Linda. "Don't worry about what people think. They don't do it very often." Not quite your usual advice but I have to agree. As for taking the wrong turn in Canada, I would always ask a local for advice and expect an honest answer!

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a great post! Like!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I liked the light rail in Jerusalem. We just returned from Jordan and there was no light rail there even though we could see Israel across the waters of the Dead Sea. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Tim Horton's was definitely my go to place for coffee on our Canadian Maritime two month tour. Great coffee and Wi-Fi:)

  52. Lovely tram system that one. Animals are a lot more intelligent than we used to think they were in general. New observations lifting it higher up the scale every year with recent methods of non obtrusive study in the wild.

  53. Thank you for all these wonderful quotes!
