Weekend Relief

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

A Snowflake - A Winter Story

True Friends Never Forget - Especially Elephants

Kitten and Owl Video Becomes Internet Sensation in Japan

1950's Coca Cola Commercial

Unwanted Dog Adopted by Millionaire

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.

Laughter is the best medicine...the second best is chocolate!

Prayer is not asking, it is a longing of the soul.  It is daily admission of one's weakness...and so, it is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without heart. - Gandhi

Enlightenment is a death and a resurrection. - Osho

You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do. - Henry Ford

Afraid knot (afraid not)  :)  :)

The best place in the world is in the arms of someone who will not only hold you at your best but will pick you up and hug you tight at your worst.

Deal with tomorrow tomorrow.  Stay focused on now.

When you look for the good in others, you discover the good within yourself. - Martin Walsh

"Man, this place is a dump."  :)

Don't keep all your feelings pent up inside.  Sometimes you need a good cry.

Every challenging experience we face in life hands us a two sided coin of choice and opportunity.  We can use that experience as a reason to build us or bury us.  If we learn to live with whatever life hands us, and transform it into something of value, we will become a better person because of the lessons learned. - Denise Brusa

If you allow your mood to be at the mercy of unpredictable events and unreliable people, your joy will forever be on a chaotic roller coaster ride. Resist seeking joy from outside in.  Seek it from inside out. Instead of counting all the ways the world's done you wrong, count your blessings instead.

Never let the bad someone did to you ruin your happiness.  Never let their bad behavior stop you from behaving at your very best.

Endings are awesome new beginnings in disguise.

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!

  10. Awww kitten and owl are really adorable together!
    "Afraid knot" cracked me up :-) Happy Friday!

  11. Beautiful animal videos. Elephants may be big but they are so gentle. Cute kitten and owl friendship and the dog is really fortunate to have found a new home.

  12. Afraid knot,so funny☺

  13. une citation intéressante d' Osho..Linda

    have a nice day..

  14. Bonjour Linda,
    J'ai été absente quelques jours mais je ne t'oublie pas.
    Toujours un post très riches en photos, vidéos et citations.merci pour tout. je te souhaite une belle fin de semaine. Bises de Haute Provence

  15. Un'altra bella serie di video. MI piace molto quella con il cane e l'elefante. I veri amici non si scordano mai. Buon proseguimento di settimana.

  16. Such an inspiration..:)

  17. Happy Weekend Linda!
    The kitten and owl are hilarious.

  18. Sad times about the poor elephant and dog, a friend indeed.

  19. The elephant and dog video is very poignant.

  20. 'True Friends Never Forget', dear friend !

  21. Por algo se dice eso de tener memoria de elefante. El vídeo del gatito y el búho no me estraña sea un fenómeno es muy simpático.


  22. Our office used to have a neck/back masseuse come in every Wednesday. For 15 minutes and a few dollars, one had a little slice of heaven. The masseuse told me that she could feel how empathic and emotional I was, and she told me that if she didn't cry daily, all of those feelings would overwhelm her. I do not cry every day, but when I'm down or sad/mad/frustrated, I no longer stop myself from crying. Let it out!

  23. The kitten and owl video is cute!

  24. OMG, Linda... I've got tears in my eyes.
    This collection is my new favorite. Thank you!!

  25. I was familiar with the story of Tarra and Bella, but it was touching to see it again. I hope Tarra has found a new best friend since losing Bella. That was certainly a unique relationship.

  26. Awww on the elephant and Lady. I loved the owl and the kitten. I linked you to Feline Friday.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  27. All the videos were great. I love the snowflake one also the elephant and the dog. Great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  28. Laughter is indeed the best medicine! Have a lovely weekend!

  29. Linda, Love that elephant dog buddy story! It was also touching when the other elephants brought food to Tara to try to comfort her... Viewing that Coca Cola ad sure gives one a sense of just how much society has changed in the last 60 years. As for Lady's adoption, I wonder if that family in Florida would like to adopt an old geezer? They could pick me up here in East Tennessee whenever they want! Nice ending for Lady, that's for sure! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  30. I love your videos. Happy weekend.

  31. Hi Linda,
    the movie of the falling snowflake is beautiful put together :-)
    The video of the dog and the elephant was really special!
    The other movies are great. The hnd who got one new house is so beautiful to hear and see :-)
    Your text spells are again beautiful to read and sometimes I get to enjoy it;-)

  32. Hi Linda. I guess I'm not only one bowled over by the owl and the kitten. It's a truly amazing partnership. If only we humans could get on so well together? Have a lovely weekend.

  33. Que du bon temps chez toi Linda! Bise, bon vendredi dans la joie!

  34. Hello Linda! Oh my, that elephant story...Animals are such sentient beings. Wow. That is really a sad and touching story. I hope they found another fur angel for the sweet elephant. Isn't it so sweet the way the fellow elephants were comforting her? Many animals are better friends and mommies then humans right?

    That Wrigley heir, that is so great! What a happy fur angel story! Yay for that lady! I loved seeing the dog's face looking out the window of the plane, so precious! And then you see them riding together in the cart...How darling is that? : ) That lady is great. : )

    What a sweet post, the coke ad brings back memories of the diners in many of the stores. Really cute. So much more of a wholesome time...

    Have a fantastic rest of the week Linda! Blessings!

  35. Yes, "An elephant never forgets!" Brings to mind that line/scene from one of my favourite Disney's animations, The Jungle Book.

  36. Really cool post dear
    Great blog! I'm following you, follow back?

  37. Good evening Linda,
    It has been much too long since I have visited.. Your posts are always so special, and this one just touched my heart.

  38. Have a great week end, Linda!
    Kisses from Portugal

    Have a great weekend Linda !!!!!

  40. Love all the videos! Thanks so much for sharing!
    Hugs, Jody ♥

  41. "You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do" - that's correct, but you can get a Nobel Prize which could build you a reputation(Obama got a Nobel Prize at the very beginning of his activity at the White House).

  42. Wonderful quotes and videos, dearest Linda!
    "When you look for the good in others, you discover the good within yourself" is my favourite... because of the happy, little flowers. :)
    Big hugs! ♥

  43. Bonsoir Linda
    Je me demande où tu trouves toutes ces jolies vidéos. Merci pour ce beau partage.
    Je te souhaite un agréable dimanche. Un beau bonjour des Alpes de Haute Provence

  44. I know someone I can send that bear on a couch to:))

  45. The videos and quotes are wonderful. I really was touched by the elephant and dog video. They were true friends till the end. Thanks for sharing this post Linda.

  46. Elephants have such good memory. :-)

    Greetings from London.

    1. What a throw back in time with that cola commercial.

  47. Very touching videos and beautiful sentiments!

  48. The big elephant and the lovely dog are really friends!
    I would love to get along more with my dog :)


  49. Hello Linda,
    Nice post with funny movies.
    The movie with the elephant is great!!

    Best regards,

  50. I wonder why they picked a kitten in the snowflake video, other than it was a cute ending, as any cats/kittens I've seen really detest any snow or rain falling on them with a passion and shake them off :o)

  51. Bonjour chère Linda,

    Un très joli billet... Je découvre plein de belles choses...
    Cependant je vais choisir l'idée de croquer du chocolat !! c'est bon pour le moral !
    Gros bisous

  52. Hi Linda! That Coke commercial is a scream! Can you imagine having that kind of ad running today? (And who goes out and purchases 'a whole new spring wardrobe'?
    I loved the image with the quote about building a reputation on what I'm going to do. That was very inspiring for me today!
    Sunday blessings,

  53. What positive thoughts and images you share here, I always leave with a smile. My favorite was the one about someone to hold you at your worst times, so true. Trees bien!!

  54. Oh gosh Linda, what a beautiful video of Tara the elephant. It was so incredible and really touched my heartstrings. To have tried to carry her doggie friend back to the headquarters was amazing.
    Thanks once more for all the care you put into choosing your post items.
    I hope you have an enjoyable week aheadxx

  55. Thank you Linda! I hope you had a great weekend! I loved the videos! The snowflake and kitten and the owl and kitten! Love them all and really loved the quotes! Big Hugs!

  56. The snowflake video was lovely, I felt sorry for the snowflake and was so glad to have a happy ending (although I don't think you would have shown it to us if it didn't).
