Monday Selections

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

Sam the Bengal Cat and Pip the Otter

11 Year Old Sells Lemonade to Buy Wheelchairs for Others

Daughter Asked Dad to Play for '5 More Minutes', Woman was Shocked to Hear His Response

Dolphins Protect Diver from Hammerhead Shark


Three Bulls on a Farm are Arguing Over Who Gets to Have the Most Cows  :) (sharing because laughter is good medicine!)

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.

A woman is like a tea bag.  You can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water. - Eleanor Roosevelt


The axe forgets.  The tree remembers. - African Proverb


Everything in this universe is energy!  Trust the energy you feel around a person.  This energy lets you know a lot of information.  Listen up!


The answer:  Love.  The question?  The answer to most questions is to send love to a situation or a person.  This often includes loving yourself a lot more.


No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you always have the chance to turn it all around.


Loving words are just a bunch of pretty verbal decorations if they're not backed up by loving actions.


Think for yourself.  Trust your intuition.  Another's mind is not walking your journey.  You are.


In the midst of winter, I found there was within me an invincible summer.  And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, there's something within me, there's something stronger, something better, pushing right back. - Albert Camus


You don't know what you got until you write a gratitude list and truly appreciate it all.


Stop wasting time worrying what people think about you.  Live your life the way you want to!  Don't let the opinions of others become your reality or your arrow of direction.  Be open to growing and being your best.  But live for your dreams, your happiness.


Please don't judge people.  You don't know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel as presentable as possible and face the day.  You never truly know the daily struggles of others.


Whatever is happening in your life, don't preoccupy yourself with the question of why?  But rather ponder more on where these events will be bringing you. Know that you're being led to somewhere beautiful, beyond your present hard reality.  Once you get to the where then you'll know the why.  Trust the process.


What is coming is better than what is gone.


Spoiler alert:  it will all work out for you in the end.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  5. Unusual markings on the cat. Dolphins are usually good at protecting humans for some reason but not so gentle with small porpoise when they find them... or each other. Complex characters as you could also speculate that they just like annoying sharks rather than helping humans sometimes :o) Maybe similar to a dog- human relationship on occasion when they can be good company one minute and badly behaved the next?

  7. Hello Linda, I did laugh over those bulls!
    I’m a huge fan of Dolphins. They are such wonderful creatures. The last time Terry and I were in Australia we borrowed our son's canoe and went for a paddle down the river close to where he lives. He told us there were dolphins in the river, but we were surprised by how many there were and how happy they were to play. They kept leaping up and around the canoe, swimming under it before coming back up to bash their tails on the water. We got absolutely soaked, and they appeared to be laughing their heads of! At first we thought they might be warning us to go away but not a bit of it. They were just having fun. We ended up staying down river for over two hours and frightened the life out of our son. He was sure we were in trouble, and he was scanning the bank trying to find us. We felt like naughty children when we got out of the canoe.

  12. The boy selling lemonade for a good cause, should be an inspiration to all kids. He's wonderful and admirable.

    I like all sayings that encourage the individual: love yourself more, live for your dreams, trust your intuition, don't let others' opinions stand in your way...

  14. Linda, Love Bengal cats and otters too...what an unusual and fun combination! Nice story about the boy and his lemonade stand... Dolphins are amazing and there have been many stories about them helping humans... We swam with some dolphins down in Florida. It was interesting and fun too. As for the bull/cow joke, it was a real groaner! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    You never know what it took for another to get out of bed is right, everyone has their hard, and just because it's not your hard, doesn't mean it isn't hard for that person.
