The best things in life are free!  Love, hugs, laughter, smiles, friends, family and positive memories!

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. - Ronald Reagan

We'll inevitably face challenges in life.  The best defense is believing that we are strong, we will survive and we will be better for it.

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy. - Anne Frank

Life is a rope that swings us through hope.  Always believe that today is better than yesterday and tomorrow will be much better than today.

Make time for the "I love you," the "I appreciate you," the hugs, and stretch out all the good moments.  Leave no room for regrets of a kind word left unsaid.  Say them daily.

A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.

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

We are mirrors to each other.  We show each other things we couldn't see on our own. - James L. Whitley

One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things. - Henry Miller

Be flexible, moving, with the flow of life and not against it, will be your greatest achievement. - Oprah Winfrey

Don't be pushed by your problems.  Be led by your dreams. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whoever is happy will make others happy too. - Anne Frank

Ability is what you're capable of doing.  Motivation determines what you do.  Attitude determines how well you do it. - Raymond Chandler

Don't always scrape and search for compliments. Criticism is what builds character and strength! - Author Unknown

Don't fear failure.  In great attempts it is glorious even to fail. - Bruce Lee

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 best things in life are free! Love, hugs, laughter, smiles, friends, family and positive memories!" I most certainly agree. Treasure them, cherish them always!

    Have a lovely weekend ahead, Linda. Cheers!

  2. Scared Chipmunk, is beautiful to see, thankfully he is saved. Have a nice weekend Linda.

  3. Liked all the videos Linda. Scooter looks good for city travel trips and sadly we have fighting dog rings here as well.

  4. The Chunky Scooter -> wahw, super, Linda !

  5. Lots of great quotes today!

  6. Loved the squirrel save and rescuing those dogs was a wonderful thing.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

  7. Linda, At this stage and age of my life, my balance isn't sure enough to use one of those electric scooters but they do look like fun. How in the heck did that chipmunk get stuck in the trailer hitch?! He was lucky that he was rescued... The story about the fighting dogs was sad. Many of them will not be successfully rehabilitated and they will have to be put down. At least there is hope for some after months of rehab... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  8. The best things in life are free! Love, hugs, laughter, smiles, friends, family and positive memories!

    So true. Happy weekend.

  9. Enjoyed this post very much. Wonderful videos and great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  10. une belle publication avec une préférence pour la première vidéo Linda


  11. Chipmunk and dog rescue have to be my favorites, Linda.
    Lovely quotes as well! I'm set for the next few days.
    Have a safe, happy weekend, Linda.

  12. Thank you for today's inspiration!
    Have a really good weekend

  13. Hello Linda, happy Friday!
    I particularly liked the quote 'We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone', I think if we can help someone each day it can go to making our world a better place to live in ...

    I do hope you have a good weekend.

    All the best Jan

  14. I had even thought about suggesting that you cross illegally into the US, because then you'd get all the benefits from the US that the people crossing illegally into Canada receive. It seems to be a worldwide problem.

  15. I enjoyed the quotes today, always gives me something to ponder.

  16. Hi Linda,
    my favorite quote today is "We are mirrors to each other. We show each other things we couldn't see on our own." The stuck chipmunk was interesting and lucky for him a good samaritan came to the rescue.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  17. You have provided much food for thought in this post, Linda. Merci! And the videos were a delight, especially the chipmunk one. Thanks for your kind words. Things are getting a bit dicey here's quite stormy with lots of wind and rain but nothing like southern Florida. We'll get some strong winds overnight but I think we'll come out of it OK.

  18. Thank you Linda!!
    I read your other post. I hope you have good success with the gofundme!
    Big Hugs!!

  19. Insomnia is a rare problem for me.

  20. "Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy. - Anne Frank" <-- Thanks for the reminder, Linda ^.^
