Good morning and have a nice day.  Take chances, make mistakes, that's how you grow.


Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. - Martin Buxbaum


Hear ye!  Hear ye!  The princess (and the pup) declare this a jammies (pajamas) all day, day!  :)


Seek respect, not attention.  It lasts longer.


Nothing is permanent in this world, not even our troubles.


Brain, brain, go away...overthink another day.  :)


Wherever you go, go with all your heart. - Confucius


An ear tip identifies a community cat who is neutered and vaccinated.  When a cat is under anesthesia to be neutered, the tip of the left ear is painlessly removed - about 1 centimeter.


The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. - Oprah Winfrey


sleeping bag.  :)


Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. - Coco Chanel


Never say sorry for being honest.







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!

  3. The dog with vitiligo is very unique and it looks very special with the unusual spots. I am glad it is helping kids with the same problem. Have a beautiful day!

  5. Hello Linda, I’m just full of admiration for the Great Grandma who delivers summer lunches. She and others like her are such an inspiration.
    I’ve never seen a group of birds get so much enjoyment out of a bath. Lovely as always, have a good week. x

  15. Hi Linda, lovely videos and quotes! I especially liked the Percy the cat video although I would worry if a cat of mine took a train everyday!
    Take care.

  18. I like the videos about people helping people. Great Grandma does a great job. I'm not sure about the cat neutering ear clips, though. I can't find anything missing on our cat's ears and they were both neutered. Have a great middle of the week!

  20. Linda such heartwarming videos...especially the one with the sticky notes - paying for pizza for the homeless. Makes me once again realize how there are so many wonderful caring people there are in this world. As for Percy - too cute...how smart cats can be!! Hope you have a blessed Easter dear friend. Hugs!

    That must be something new as I worked for 3 different vets over a number of years and that was never done!!

    Thanks for the Raphael Vavasseur Art it always puts a smile on my face.

    Have a happy day Diane

  29. Hi Linda,

    Such wonderful inspiration in both videos and quotes. I really love what Oprah is saying; it makes sense, right? A positive attitude, a joy in the every day, an appreciation for one's health, and the health of their loved ones, being able to support oneself - these are the fundamental things in life, and the older we get, the more we are grateful for them.

    Thanks for sharing and wishing you a blessed Easter!

    Hugs,
    Poppy:)

  31. The woman delivering lunches gives me hope for this crazy world.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lunches for kids, pizzas for homeless... One asks oneself - where's the state? where's the welfare?

    There are some lucky people out there that age well; they don't loose their beauty in old age.

  33. Seek respect and not attention! I like that!

  34. Linda, Nice stories about feeding the children and the homeless. Donations to feed those in need is my largest charity output every year. I am bothered by the fact that not enough is done to solve the problem at it's core. Food keeps people going but it isn't a solution to their problems.

    Love Percy and his train ride to see the penguins!

    Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  35. I loved the video about the great-grandma taking lunches to the kids during the summer. What a great ministry! She's still beautiful physically, but there's great beauty in her heart, too.

  36. Thanks for another great post!

  37. "Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. - Martin Buxbaum"
    I like that! After all, beauty is just skin deep. What matters most would be what's within.

  38. Thank you for sharing very interesting videos and all the wise quotes. I am actually a collector of wise quotes inside my smartphone as they always cheered me up!

  40. Oh my, those bushtits are so cute! :) We live near a lake, I wonder if a bird bath could be useful anyway.
    Thank you for the lovely post, dearest Linda! Happy Easter!

  41. Hi! I like the bird bath video very much. Thanks for sharing.

  42. Such a wonderful, unique selection, Linda! I like the "brain, brain go away" quote, and the encouragement to be oneself. The bird mob was adorable. Linda, do you know how vital your life has been to mine? We've never met, and yet, your kindness, encouragement and love have bolstered me, help me make resolutions that HAVE BEEN KEPT, and to realize that my personal growth is never ending, and never to be taken for granted. Thank you for the gift of your specialness, ESPECIALLY when you may not fully feel like it! love, de

  43. Percy the cat is so cute! My boys may want to join in the train to go see penguins :-)

    1. And about "All My Patients are Under the Bed" book...I have a copy! Can you imagine having the vet come to your house?!? How cool would that be!

  48. Our TNR cats are ear tipped that way. When i am out and see a stray and look for the ear and find it, i know at least that one is part of a managed feral colony and i'm glad.

    Very nice videos!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hello Linda! I can't wait to see the video on the dog with the skin problems...So sweet! I see one is about a cat with the trimmed ear? Our girls' friend found a little fella like that. Our bandwidth is busy this weekend so videos are not coming in well.

    Great quotes. Love the overthinking one and the Coco Chanel one. That is the truth! Yes as a couple of famous people have said, may we be a first class version of ourselves. : )

    Have a great Easter Linda! Blessings to you and a hug!

  52. I have always liked this advice, Linda ---> Wherever you go, go with all your heart. - Confucius

    It is similar to 'Bloom where God plants you." - a quote I love. :)

  53. "Brain, brain, go away! Overthink another day!" Love that quote. Sometimes my brain hurts from overthinking. The bushtits flash mob in the birdbath is particularly soothing to a hurting brain. Have a great evening ~ hope that labyrinthitis is easing!
