Weekend Thoughts

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

Here's Why we Have that Little Groove Below our Nose

Cop Fosters Abandoned Kittens she Keeps Finding on Duty

This is What Happens to Your Body During a Flight

Cat's Strange Behavior at a Funeral Leaves this Family Scratching their Heads

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see another view.

I believe that trapped emotions can be implicated in nearly all diseases, either directly or indirectly. - Dr. Bradley Nelson

Allow me to talk about my past without saying, "Stop living in the past."  A listening ear for the moment is all I need. - Tatauq Helena Muma

Poisonous relationships can alter your perception. You can spend many years thinking you're worthless...but you're not worthless, you're unappreciated. - Steve Maraboli

You are not broken.  You are breaking through. - Alex Myles

Your whole life will be a learning and growing experience, whose extent can only be imagined.  Life will be your classroom. - Donna Gephart

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. - William Butler Yeats

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love.  A gift to that person.  A beautiful thing. - Mother Teresa

Remember that your natural state is joy! - Wayne Dyer

As you grow, you learn more.  Aging is not just decay.  It's growth.  It's more than the negative that you're going to die, it's the positive that you understand you're going to die, and that you live a better life because of it. - Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

I was never crippled until I lost hope. - Nick Vujicic

What I have learned, at my advanced age, is to be grateful that we have a nice life.  There is electricity, cars, telegraph, telephone, internet.  We also have hot water all day long.  We live like kings. - Alice Herz-Sommer, 110

I've only just realized how utterly exhausted and drained I am after living in a near constant state of fight or flight for so long.

Strength is what we gain from the madness we survive.

Happiness isn't getting all you want.  It's enjoying all you have.

Never be afraid to help others in their time of need. You never know when you may need a shoulder to lean on.

Empaths aren't burdened souls, they're bestowed with the greatest gift to help heal the world. - Maria Flynn

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!


  1. Great selections, Linda!
    The quote of 'You are not broken, you are breaking through' encourages me!!


  2. I love Mother Teresa's words. Keep smiling, Linda and have a great weekend ahead. God bless, cheers!

  3. Cop Fosters is beautiful Linda, I wish you a very nice weekend.

  4. Interesting video about cat at the burial plot. I suppose the cat knows the one who was buried and misses the dead person.

  5. Wonderful quotes, Linda! I love them all.

  6. Marvelous sharing dearest Linda!

    Truly loved this treasure selected by you .
    you are amazing at you skills my friend!

  7. I linked this post to Feline Friday because of your two cat videos. That cat at the grave-site was pretty amazing.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Linda. ☺

  8. What a special person that woman is who rescues the kittens.

  9. 'We live like kings...', but we forget it so often, Linda...

  10. Linda, Now I know all about philtrums...even what the heck they are! Probably will come in handy in a word game... Nice cop fostering cats... As for the effects of flying, the loss of taste is probably a good thing on flights as the food is so bad these days! My wife and her sister both suffered from ear pain on our recent overseas flights. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  11. I found the flight information interesting as we will be flying next month. As always the quotes are always thought provoking.

  12. Wonderful and interesting videos, enjoyed each and every one of them. Great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  13. Hi Linda. Your videos and quotes are awesome. Happy weekend.

  14. Life will be your classroom.
    I think it is truth. It is like school with difficult exercises.
    Greetings :)

  15. First of all, I did delete that comment. Funny, but I've done the same kind of thing in the past! No problem. You have some really fun videos today. I didn't know that about the thingy below the nose but isn't it strange that some folks come out deformed when others don't? Can't see a merciful god in that. And the cop with her kitties. We love kitties and I'd have a houseful if but as my wife would say - maybe your next lifetime! And I finally have an answer as to why airplane food tastes so bad! :) The kitty at the funeral was cute, too, but knowing cats, he may have just been expressing frustration after a hard day of mouse hunting!

  16. Hello Linda, and Happy Friday.
    Another week whizzes by!

    I do like these words 'Happiness ...It's enjoying all you have.'

    Have a lovely weekend

    All the best Jan

  17. Enternecedor el vídeo del gato en el funeral.


  18. I didn't know about that below the nose thing. Very interesting. Some wonderful quotes today, I do love the quote portion of your post. Have a wonderful weekend Linda.

  19. I’ve never given the groove below our noses any though, but the video about it is fascinating as is the one with the white cat. They say you learn something new everyday, and that is certainly true when I visit you. Happy a lovely weekend.

  20. C'est bien bizarre cette histoire du chat, quand André est décédé, ma petite Canelle a mal réagi puis par la suite pendant un mois de temps, elle s'assoyait en dessous du cadrage de porte de notre chambre à coucher et miaulait mais vraiment d'une façon bizarre, ce n'était pas ses miaules normaux... puis elle n'entrait plus dans la chambre, au bout d'un mois elle s'est décidée à venir dormir à mes pieds alors qu'avant elle y dormait toujours, ils ne sont pas fous ces petits animaux, ils ressentent beaucoup d'émotion eux aussi... Bisou, bon samedi tout doux!

  21. Hi, Linda! I have so enjoyed your recent shares, and today's shares were particularly great in the mix - allowing one thought to flow to the next so that they are all balanced together. You always do a great job doing that. Wishing you a lovely week-end! xx

  22. I enjoyed the videos Linda. The first was fascinating and so was the flying one, and even the cat at the funeral. A sweet story about the young lady fostering the kittens she finds while patrolling. Such a good heart. Those wise words I always read through a couple of times. Thank you for all the time and effort it takes to put you posts together. Have a great weekend :)

  23. Belle fin de semaine Linda. Merci pour tous tes jolis posts.

  24. Love the Mother Teresa quote and the one about happiness be enjoying what we have.

  25. une excellente citation de Mother Teresa Linda


  26. Sorry I am getting a bit behind. Another set of great sayings. Diane

  27. Thanks for another collection of great quotes!

  28. We live like kings, that is true, but we often don't realize it :)
    Have a good weekend

  29. Thank you Linda! A very touching post! I love Mother Teresa! Big Hugs!

  30. I like this so much - You are not broken. You are breaking through. - Alex Myles
