At the end of the day I am at peace because my intentions are good and my heart is pure.

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

You never know what someone is going through.  Be kind.  Always.

Live out of your imagination, not your history.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any. - Alice Walker

Life isn't about pleasing everyone, it is about hurting no one!

You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.

My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter than my solitude. - Warsan Shire

Some see a hopeless end, while others see an endless hope. - E.B. Norton

Failure is an event, not a person.  Yesterday ended last night. - Zig Ziglar

Care less about what you own.  Care more about how you live.

As one wastes their breath complaining, another breathes their last.  Take nothing for granted.  Live more, complain less.  Have more smiles, less stress.

If you surround yourself with clowns, don't be surprised if your life becomes a circus.  :)

Sometimes letter go is an act of far greater power than defending or holding on. - Eckhart Tolle

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. The dog waiting video made me cry, friend Linda ... as it reminds me of how my cat Theo came into my life ... Love always, cat.

  2. Wonderful to see the 1950's sweather fashion, Linda! I can remember my mother had sweather's like that :)

  3. Live more, complain less - very wisdom sentence.
    Greetings :)

  4. We should definitely care more about how we live, not how much we own.
    Have a good day

  5. She Waited, is beautiful, what a sweet faithful dog. I wish you a nice Wednesday Linda

  6. Love the quotations but this has got to be my favourite: As one wastes their breath complaining, another breathes their last. Take nothing for granted. Live more, complain less. Have more smiles, less stress.

  7. Thanks to the kind guy the turtle can return to the sea safely. My heart goes out to the lost dog but it was wonderful that it now has a loving family that loves and takes good care of the dog.

  8. All beautiful sayings and yes Sometimes letting go is an act of far greater power than defending or holding on. Thanks for sharing. Have a good day, Diane

  9. Hello, love the videos. The turtle and dog waiting on his family are great. My motto is be kind to everyone. Great quotes! Have a happy day!

  10. Hello Linda, the quotes are beautiful and wise.
    They really are good to read for me for "where" I am in my life right now..
    The video with the dog is heartbreaking, good he found a new home in the end. I love the cat paintings in your previous post, I have a cat that I love so much,

    j'aime beaucoup la petite vidéo avec la tortue .... (je suis comme toi, j'aime les tortues)
    Belle journée. Bises

  18. Such a shame that poor dog waiting for so long...

  19. I felt really bad for the dog but good people showed up and gave him a nice forever home. A wonderful end to the sad story. My favorite quote is: You never know what someone is going through. Be kind. Always.

    Thanks for another wonderful post Linda and have a great day!

    Wonderful quotes also. Love the reminder, "As one wastes their breath..."

  23. Happy Midweek Wishes Linda ...
    Super videos again, I did enjoy seeing the sweaters.

    A smile, a show of kindness to someone often works wonders, I did like this quote "You never know what someone is going through.  Be kind.  Always."

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

    All the best Jan

  24. Even at midnight, it is so nice to read you, Linda...

  25. Oh my goodness, that poor little dog, but she was rescued and is a happy girl now. She so deserves it! We have five doggies from similar situations like that now, they are a huge Blessing to us!

    So glad the turtle was helped! That poor thing.

    Those quotes are outstanding. They are so good, I read several outloud to my grown daughters here. Bravo!

    I really enjoyed my visit Linda! You take care now, give that Romeo special pets for me. : ) Praying for the housing situation too.

    Super hugs coming your way! love, Amelia

  26. Enjoyed the dog story.

  27. Linda, My wife saves a couple of turtles (not sea turtles though) every year. She has me stop the car and she takes them across the road in the direction that they were headed.

    I clearly remember all of those sweater fashions...although the twin sets did make a comeback later. The only thing missing from the video, and maybe they weren't big in the UK, was a poodle skirt! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  28. I feel like that sea turtle sometimes when I'm getting out of be in the morning. I just don't feel as though I can do it ;-)

  29. The man helping the turtle video is good to see.

  30. What a wide array of videos. I enjoyed the animal videos and a nostalgic look at fashions is always fun.

  31. Sweet videos about the dog and the turtle. It's encouraging to see people rescuing animals in need.

  32. une citation intéressante d' E.B. Norton..Linda

    have a nice day

  33. Juste un petit coucou Linda.
    Bonne journée à toi.

  34. Sea Turtle video is amazing Linda, thanks for sharing! Love this: Care less about what you own. Care more about how you live.


  35. Dear Linda - that sweet dog waiting for her family was so touching. Pulls on my heart strings. Great quotes for mid week too. Those sweaters sure were lovely...wish we still had these to choose from today. Hugs!

  36. El vídeo del perro esperando a sus dueños me recordaron casos similares e incluso ir hacer una visita al cementerio.


  37. Beautiful Linda! I love the turtle video! Big Hugs!

  38. This is a nice one, Linda ;) ---> If you surround yourself with clowns, don't be surprised if your life becomes a circus.

  39. I really believe this quote: "You never know what someone is going through. Be kind. Always." Such an important thing to remember. Have a great week, my dear friend!
