Valentine Week!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! Happy Valentine's Day to each and every one of you!

The videos I have selected for this post are:

Cats Showing Valentine's Day Love

A Cat's Guide to Winter

Didn't It Rain - Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Happy Celtic Music - At Work - Peder B. Helland

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.

All you need is love...and a tiara.  And maybe some chocolate.


If others talked to you the way you talk to yourself, would you consider them friends?  Be kind to yourself.


You have to understand the difference between someone who speaks to you on their free time and someone who frees their time to speak to you.


Sometimes I need to go off on my own.  I'm not sad. I'm not angry.  I just need to recharge my batteries.


Cheers to all the people who can change their mind when presented with information that contradicts their beliefs.


In this very moment, undistracted by regretting the past, or stressing about the future, give yourself your undivided attention, return to yourself, let everything else be.


Those who judge will never understand and those who understand will never judge. - Wilson Kanadi


May the stars carry your sadness away.  May flowers fill your heart with beauty.  May hope forever wipe away your tears.  And above all, may silence make you strong.


Kindness makes the world sweeter. - Susan Olson


Having Bipolar Disorder means waking up not knowing whether Tigger or Eeyore will be making your decisions for you.


You are not too old and it's not too late.


A good friend is someone who is there for me when I'm glad or sad...who I can laugh madly with or cry badly with.


Sometimes good people make bad choices.  It does not mean they are bad people.  It means they are human.


Through gratefulness you attract grace.  Gratefulness is the magnetic force that brings grace to you. - Osho



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!

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my genealogy blog. I am glad you are enjoying it! And, that you're enjoying genealogy and finding cousins, etc. Facebook is a resource that is new to me as a genealogy tool, but it is incredibly useful. It's amazing how different research is from when I first started 19 years ago.

  40. Linda, Re: Loving cats... We tried to adopt a little girl/playmate for our grumpy old cat but he wasn't having any part of it! No lover for sure. He just beat the heck out of her. We do have a squirrel that likes to tease him though... Comes right up to the window on our deck and drives the old boy nuts! The bit with Sister Rosetta Tharpe was excellent. As for that Celtic music...keeps me on track with planning for a Scotland/Ireland trip! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
