Weekend Well Wishes and Moving and Go Fund Me

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have not said much about my upcoming move because thus far there is really not much to tell.  I am still searching for a place, and I really hope to find on by my birthday, next month (October 27th).
I will continue posting updates as they become available.  As well, I will be keeping the Go Fund Me link on the right hand column of my blog at least until after Christmas, so if any of you who are able to, and wish to donate any money to help with my move, I would greatly appreciate.  A heartfelt thanks to all of you who have helped already, and a heartfelt thanks to any of you who are able to help between now and Christmas.  Love and hugs to you all!

The videos I have selected for this post are:

This Slow Pet is Quick to Love!  Meet the 1 lb. Snail

Friendly Sea Turtle Greets Divers

Education is not a preparation for life:  education is life itself. - John Dewey


Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now.  Shake off the "why's" and "what if's", and rid yourself of confusion. Whatever was - is in the past.  Whatever is - is what's important.  The past is a brief reflection. The future is yet to be realized. Today is here. - Vicki Silvers


When the road curves to lead you into new discoveries...let it take you.  When the page you're on builds suspense, turn it - for it will end happily. - Susan A. J. Lyttek


When things aren't going the way you'd like, remind yourself that every negative has a positive somewhere in it. - Suzanne Moore


It's not how many goals you reach, but how many lives you touch.  It's not who you know that matters, but who you are inside. - Rebecca Barlow Jordan


The world would be a much better place if everyone smiled more. - Mother Teresa


Embrace every moment you are given.  Cherish the people, places and things that fill your life with so much warmth and joy. - Anna Marie Edwards


Learning without thought is labor lost;  thought without learning is perilous. - Confucius


Let us spend a day as deliberately as nature. - Thoreau


Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. 


Where there is heart there is hope.


If speaking kindly to plants helps them grow, imagine what speaking kindly to humans can do.


Know this:  You can start over each morning.


No matter how much it rains...there's a place in you that never stops shining.


True kindness is helping someone without expecting anything in return.


Be brave.  Even if you're not, pretend to be.  No one can tell the difference.


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!

  12. I could never imagine having a snail as a pet - no way. Enjoyed the underwater videos. Best of luck with your moving.

  13. So many inspirational thoughts, Linda. And the underwater videos were fascinating. I've never heard of anyone having a snail for a pet, though...let alone a snail as big as the one in your video.

    Thanks again for this wonderful post Linda and have a lovely weekend.

  26. Me sorprende que el caracol se deje acariciar como un perro o un gato y su gran tamaño. Los vídeos de la tortuga y la anguila también me gustaron aunque la anguila en un principio me pareció con cara de pocos amigos.

    Saludos.

  27. The Eel is amazing and the sea turtle, and have never thought of having a snail for a pet before, so very interesting. What a neat experience for the divers and for that lady. Helping depression with food is also very interesting. And those wise words are a great collection Linda, wonderful post. Good luck with your move my dear friend and I hope you will find a place soon.

    Thanks for sharing so many wonderful sayings. Hope you have a good weekend Diane

  32. I've never seen a snail so big as that African snail or an eel as big as that wolf eel. You've posted another great selection of posters that are very helpful. I especially enjoyed the one about certain foods helping with depression. Hope you're having a great weekend and best wishes on your upcoming move. That's a big job and we're finally sort of settled in but it's worth all the trouble.

  33. Coucou. J'espère que vous trouverez rapidement avant votre anniversaire.
    Bisous

  36. Fantastic Foods that Fight Depression - of course fruits and vegetables. I like better fruits than vegetables.
    Happy Sunday :)

  40. The sea turtle video is precious to me, friend Linda ... Love, cat.

  41. Hi Linda! I watched with interest the video about foods and depression. There was some good stuff in there! I also enjoyed the quote from Mother Teresa. A smile is such a small thing, but so big to the person who could really need one.
    God bless your path, and your search for a new home,
    Ceil
