Mid-Week Enrichment

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

Just Before Retiring, an Elderly Carpenter Took One Last Job. He Never Saw This Coming! (great life lesson here)

Congregation Shamed Cowboy for what he Wore to Church, but his Response was Priceless!  

Lost Baby Elephant Finally Finds Mom

Decorator Crabs Make High Fashion at Low Tide - Deep Look

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.

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life.  Where you stumble, there lies your treasure. - Joseph Campbell


What you tell yourself every day will either lift you up or tear you down.


Now that we have learned to fly in the air like birds and dive in the sea like fish, only one thing remains - to learn to live on earth like humans. - George Bernard Shaw


They say there is no money for schools, no money for hospitals, no money for a pay raise...so how is there always money for war?


Be a reflection of what you'd like to receive.  If you want love, give love.  If you want truth, be truthful. If you want respect, give respect.  What you give out will return to you.


No matter how rich, cool, educated or talented you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all.  Integrity is everything.


If trees gave off Wi-Fi, we would all be planting them. Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe.


The smallest feline is a masterpiece. - Leonard da Vinci


Bring love into each step.


Believe in yourself and others...it might help you see the world in a different light.


There are only two seasons in Canada:  flu and mosquito.  :)


Honk if you love Canada!  :)


Think happy thoughts.


Don't hurry...be happy!  :)








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. Indeed! What does it matter what people wear to church as long as it is respectful and respectable? I never bother to put on what they call one's "Sunday best". I believe that what is in one's heart is most important.

  15. Happy Wednesday morning, Linda! I'm sitting here drinking my morning coffee and enjoying your thought-provoking post. The first video was powerful a analogy for how to live life. I would have shared that with my students, were I still teaching. And the second one was equally powerful. The other videos and the quotes you've chosen are full of things to contemplate, learn, and uplift. Have a great day, my special Montreal friend!

  16. This could not be more true!! 1Now that we have learned to fly in the air like birds and dive in the sea like fish, only one thing remains - to learn to live on earth like humans.'
    and of course, yes how is there always money for war!!!!
    Thanks once again for Raphael Vavasseur Art. He is just magical. Take care Diane

  18. Hi Linda, first thank you for all of your fine comments on my blogs ... I really do appreciate that you take the time and effort to do that. Secondly, you've got some good videos here. The cowboy video is a theological lesson...the Jesus of the gospels in several cases noted that God comes to us in the form of the poor and the sick and the weak and how we treat those people is the framework of our real religion. Very interesting. Love, also, the two seasons in Canada. Interestingly enough, we are seldom bothered with mosquitos here in Ocala. What is a good thing. But I remember them in Minnesota. There's a saying that the mosquito is Minnesota's state bird! :)

  28. Sadly it's true, there seems to always be money for war but not for things that help humanity.

  33. Happy Wednesday Linda, I hope you're having a great week xox

    I really like this quote: What you tell yourself every day will either lift you up or tear you down.

    We really need to think about what we tell ourselves... we do more to ourselves than anyone else ever could xox

  34. Sloths are so cute!!!!

  35. How we treat people certainly is telling of the kind of person each of us is. Those who are rude to waitstaff are simply rude people, no matter how nice they are to others.

  36. Linda, thanks so much for coming by the blog. I enjoyed yours very much. Thanks for sharing.

  37. The story of the carpenter and all the amazing quotes that followed it teach such important, meaningful lessons about life. It's amazing how, in just a few moments, we can review what we already have learned, but somewhere along the way, have forgotten to apply, to life's many challenges.

    Wishing you a lovely Thursday, Linda,
    Poppy:)
