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

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.

By perseverance the snail reached the ark. - Charles Spurgeon

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you.  This is the principal difference between a dog and man. - Mark Twain

Be in the present!  It's where the greatest gifts are found!

Behind the clouds the sun is still shining.

A best friend is someone who loves you when you have forgotten how to love yourself.

"You're early.  Come back in two weeks."  :)

If you love them, tell them.  Hearts are often broken by words left unspoken.

Just keep coming home to yourself.  You are the one you've been waiting for. - Byron Katie

People don't change, their priorities do.

Life will throw you off balance.  But a grateful heart won't let that stop you.

Give yourself time to heal from a challenge you've been dealt.  Letting go of hurt doesn't happen overnight.  It happens in slow, small steps forward. (Plus a few steps backwards at times.)  Be gentle and patient with yourself.

Depression is such a cruel punishment.  There are no fevers. No rashes. No blood tests to send people scurrying in concern.  Just the slow erosion of self. As insidious as cancer.  It is essentially a solitary experience.  A room in hell with only your name on the door. - Martha Manning

Our planet doesn't need more "successful people." Our planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers and lovers of all kinds. - David W. Orr

Happiness tip:  Do actions you are proud of.

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!

  11. Bonjour Linda,

    Gros bisous


  12. The baby koala video is so touching. And the unspoken words - many hearts are broken due to unspoken words, so very true.

  13. Hi Linda the video's Koala bear was beautfiul. We do need peacemakers and kind people in the World . So very true.
    Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year .

  14. une belle publication Linda

    "meanwhile in Canada" est bien trouvé

    have a nice day

  15. I know deers tend to be people-phobic, but they don't look too afraid of the cat

  16. I think you've found some especially valuable posters of late. Mr. Bean needs help. As does that poor deer. I can understand that koala bear cub...I want to be around loved ones who are hurting, too.

    Be really good to yourself today!

  17. Interesting videos Mr. Bean is so funny. The kolas were so cute. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  18. The koalas are sweet. The Twain quote really speaks to me.

  19. Hi.
    I like Mark Twain and David W. Orr aphorisms,
    deer in balcony, and koalas.

    Frost, near to Tampere this morning it was –28 °C, but I guess this cold weather is nothing compared to North-Finland is over –35°C even over 40 °C.
    Still my 23 year old car Citröen starting to frost first start, two days after..

  20. Mr. Bean!! Love him. Also really enjoyed the koala story and the cat. All of the quotes are wonderful, as usual.

    The world is so unstable right now. Your blog is my safe haven. Thank you, Linda!

  21. Love Mr. Bean. He's a riot.

    Awww on the Koala. That was so precious.

    Love the winter cat house. What a great way to keep the outside babies comfortable in cold weather.

    Have a terrific day Linda. ☺

  22. Reading your posts always makes the heart feel lighter, Linda:)

  23. I love origami ! Happy New Year Linda

  24. Mr. Bean always brings a smile to my face. My daughter loves origami...good for patience!

  25. Bonjour Linda, quelle bonne idée cette jolie petite maison pour le chat, c'est cool! Bise et bonne soirée toute douce!

  26. La casita para el gato muy ingeniosa ya que son algo frioleros siempre buscan el calor.
    Estoy de acuerdo que detrás de las nubes siempre esta el sol.
    Si hubiese mas médicos, pacifistas, maestros el mundo seria mejor.


  27. After a busy, busy day, it's fun to sit down and relax with your fun videos and inspiring quotes. I have such a big smile on my face! One of the marvelous things about flying is when you break through the cloud deck and see the brilliant sunshine; it truly is always singing behind the clouds. Have a wonderful Friday, my Montreal friend! Big hugs to you!

  28. Good job Linda :)

  29. Poor Mr.Bean !!
    And how lovely and touching the baby koala ... about the quote you always chose, I have no words, they're pricelss !
    Thank you so much for another gorgeous post, my blessed Linda,
    sending love to you
