Hope is the confident expectation that something good is going to happen. - Joyce Meyer

Hey, I might have a lot of baggage...but at least it's designer!  :)

Sometimes you just have to put on your tiara, hold your head high...and let them see your sparkle!

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. Thank you so much for sharing all these lovely quotes, Linda. I wish you a nice new week!

  2. Man Drives, is awesome from the man Linda !! I wish you a good new week.

  3. Amazing choices as always☺

  4. Thank God for that compassionate man that the animals get to drink water and that was one amazing bull dog! Have a beautiful new week!

  5. Quotes for us to ponder.

  6. "If you want to be reminded of the love of God, just watch the sunrise." - I love this quote!

  7. Good morning Linda, wow, the end of July already. Where has the time gone? That's rather a strange questions, isn't it? I think it's actually still here because we can see the results of it all around us. Enjoy your day!

  8. Good morning, Linda! I enjoyed the surfing dog. Your post are inspiring,I enjoy reading all the quotes. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  9. I'm glad that I eliminated sugar in my family.
    We tray to eat healthier. We are aware that healthy food is very important.
    Have a nice week :)

  10. I'm not sure I could ever live alone in a town/village, or in a place of two people. We are 'social animals'. Even if we like to be lonely in our home, we prefer the outside society to be full of people.

    As for today's sayings:
    Faith, indeed, doesn't spare one the trials in life, but does help one overcome them, and that's fair enough.
    Sadly, Life is not so simple, and what you give (love for instance) doesn't always come back to you, and that's greatly frustrating.

  11. Always love your choices Linda, thank you :) Wishing you a great week :)

  12. Hi, Linda! Hope your home-search is offering hope, and that you soon find something. Your quotes and simple thoughts are beautiful this fine Monday morning. Don't you just love how quickly the animals became dependent on the "water man"? I often wonder how much we instigate evolutionary behavior patterns in the animal word, without realizing how much we cause them to be different. Interesting! Have a lovely week, my kind Canadian friend! xx

  13. Oh, my! It is the end of July. Thanks for still making us smile and hopeful here.

  14. Et oui, déjà la fin Juillet !
    Merci pour tous tes jolis posts. Bonne semaine Linda

  15. Liked the videos. The shifting populations in large countries like America fascinates me as we don't get extremes to that extent here, probably due to different state funding for people out of work. Liked the water one as well.

  16. Very interesting videos enjoyed them all. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  17. Living in a Town of Two..

    ne serait pas pour moi Linda

    belle journée

  18. Bless the man for bringing water to the wild animals. What a wonderful thing to do.

    Love the surfing dog. I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Eating healthy is not so easy for some. I knew all of this and am very careful what I eat and I always eat a well balanced breakfast and lunch. I'm rarely starving when dinner rolls around. It has served me well.

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

  19. It's nice to know there are people like the water man who delvers water to those animals affected by a drought. Such an incredible person he is.
    I love your quotes Linda and I thank you for all the work you do in delivering this nice post to your followers. Hope you find a new place soon, I think about that everyday and hope you can find a match,

  20. 'Life is very simple', Linda, indeed...

  21. I've heard of that surfing bulldog before. Great quotes, as always!

  22. Fantastic. Thanks to Linda. Happy week.

  23. Hope is the confident expectation that something good is going to happen. I am hoping that all will soon be well :-) Take care Diane

  24. Bonjour chère Linda, que j'aime ces citations imagées, superbes! Bise, bonne soirée dans la joie et la douceur!

  25. Me too! I choose joy too!

  26. I've seen skateboarding bulldogs before, but never a surfing bulldog. Fun video.

  27. I just love my little visits here Linda. I hope to be able to treat myself with the videos when our internet is behaving. They look plum wonderful!

    Your quotes are so timely Linda, so many times they are just what I need that day. I think that is a Holy Spirit thing I do. : )

    Linda, I am praying for your housing. I hope that things are hopeful and it will be a blessing. I can understand how that must make you feel. I will continue to pray.

    You are a blessing Linda and I too appreciate so much the time you put into these blogs that bring joy to so many. I can't tell you how many times I've shared the videos or read the quotes to my family.

    You are an angel Linda. My daughter echoed your sentiments in the comments on my blog. Why even your comments are a blessing. (((huge hugs)))

  28. A heartwarming post today, Linda! I enjoyed each of the videos, and I found the quotations inspirational. I do believe that what you give out comes back to you; but, I also believe that you shouldn't give in expectation of receiving. I just try to be a positive influence because I'm happier with me that way. And sometimes I really fall short ~ LOL Sending you love and hugs, my friend!

  29. An even more joyful and happy collection than ever! I like it -- I wouldn't mind having that 'look on the bright side' poster on my wall! I like color and the sentiment too!!

  30. Hello Linda, a lovely selection again this morning.
    Watching the video of the man taking water to the animals cheered me no end, God Bless him and people like him.
    The surfing bulldog made me smile.
    Have a lovely week, Barbara

  31. Thank you for today's inspiration!
    Have a good week

  32. Linda, Bringing water to the animals has to be gratifying...and what a great way to see animals up close and personal... Hopefully that drought is just seasonal! I've seen Tillman the surfing and skateboarding bulldog on TV. He sure enjoys himself! As far as dieting goes, my wife and I are following the "Delay, Don't Deny" diet. We only eat during one 4 hour window per day...and once we got used to it, hunger, craving and energy levels haven't been a problem. She's down about 45 lbs. and I'm doing well too but I started it much later. Thanks for the information about Monowi and Gross NE. Our family lives in Omaha and we love exploring the back roads and small towns in the USA and Canada. These towns are right up our alley! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  33. I love the Joy one! I tell ladies all the time that some days we just have to get out of bed and out loud say, Lord, today I choose joy! TRUE! Love the surfing bulldog. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  34. I love the fact that the man drove so far to give water to the animal. That is truly great! (Rob)

  35. I was so moved the man who brings water for animals!
    Dog surfing is so lovely!!
    And very warm quote!!!
    Thank you, Linda :)


  36. Thankyou Linda for always blessing us with such beautiful posts! Big Hugs!

  37. I loved the post about the smallest towns. They must have an interesting life but I don't know what it would be like in the winter being there with no one around. Thank you for your uplifting words and I hope that everything is going well with you. Xx

  38. I choose joy and choose it every day. <-- The best thoughts to have every morning. This should be my mantra every start of the day ..haha ^.^

  39. I'm a miracle. I should repeat it every day: I'm a miracle, I'm a miracle :)
