Saturday Sunshine

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

Gomer Pyle, USMC Theme

Meet Trudy the Horse

Let Me Be There - Jim Nabors

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.

Anyone can make you happy by doing something special.  But only someone special can make you happy without doing anything extraordinary.

We must learn who is gold...and who is gold plated.

The new year means nothing if you're still in love with your comfort zone.

You were my cup of tea.  But now I drink champagne.

Stop feeding your mind thoughts about the past. Forgive those who have done you wrong.  And forgive yourself too.  Start seeding thoughts and actions which leader to a happier tomorrow.

When your friendship circle decreases in number, it's actually increasing in value.

I'm truly inspired by people who remain strong, even when they have every right to break down.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. - C.S. Lewis

Just because it is not happening right now, doesn't mean it never will.

Today is a good day to escape from whatever's holding you back from you.  Ask yourself:  are you sticking it out where you are for all the right reasons?Or are you simply staying stuck?

If ever you find yourself doubting you can make it through a challenge, simply think back to everything you've overcome in the past.

I fill my body with thoughts of love every day. - Louise L. Hay

No matter what's happened in the past...celebrate even the tiniest progress, laugh, and move forward with gratitude in your heart.

What matters is not how dense the darkness is within you, what matters is that you don't judge yourself for it.

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!

    Merci Linda de nous faire découvrir ces belles vidéos et images !

    GROS BISOUS et bon samedi !

  2. I know some people who wouldn't be gold plated, they'd be all aluminum.

  3. I know Olivia Newton John's version of that song...and I do think her version is nicer.

  4. Dear Linda,

    I wish you a nice weekend.
    Greetings Sadie

  15. You took me back to my younger years today what with that Jim Nabors material. We watched Gomer Pyle infrequently, but i recall how utterly surprised I was when I heard him sing for the first time. He was such a doofus that I thought he had no talent at all and it turns out i was the no-talent person! :)

  16. Yes, I will fill my thoughts with love everyday. Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. Gomer Pyle - I loved that show! Thanks for posting the theme song!

  18. I used to watch Gomer Pyle in the t.v. series he was in. I love to hear him sing what a voice. Great quotes once again. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  19. Gold and gold plated... I rather like that comparison.

  20. Jim Nabors day. Love it.

    Have a fabulous weekend Linda. ☺

  21. My dearest Linda, I've been watching the video about Gotcha, the Cockatoo so many times, that I cannot remember... they're too many !
    And today, how I love Trudy the horse ... you have to know that a dream of mine is to lead a farm here ... maybe one day ...
    And your quotes are always so marvelous and so true, my darling !

    Have a blessed end of your week
    sending so, so much dear love to you, my delicate and sensitive soul,

  22. My grandparent's listened to Jim Nabor's so I have all of his songs in the back of my brain just waiting for the cue to remember them again. So thank you for the memory.
    Now I want to know about Moose!

  23. Coucou Linda, I love Trudy and Moose!!! Bise et bon dimanche tout doux!

  24. Hi Linda, beautiful sayings and videos!

    Sandra xx

  25. I liked all of these- but my favorites are the one about stop feeding your mind thoughts about the past and the one about just because things are not happening now, doesn't mean they won't. Such important reminders. Thanks so much!

  26. Thinking of you fondly and gratefully, Miss Linda! XXOO

  27. You are sure bringing back some of my old favorite TV memories:)

  28. I think the Amish got the better end of that deal...two Belgian draft horses in exchange for one buggy horse. But it sounds like everyone's happy, so that makes it a good deal all around.

  29. Wow Linda...these wonderful quotes have honestly inspired me to make positive changes in my thinking!
    Thank you so much, are amazing...:))
