Forgive yourself for not being able to forgive.  You'll get there.

Find joy in the ordinary.

Two simple principles for a happy life:  use things, not people.  Love people, not things.

Your most powerful testimony is how you treat others after the church service is over.

Old roads, old dogs, old folks and old ways still have a lot to offer in this sped-up world we live in. - Unknown

You're always one decision away from a totally different life.

You don't know this new me.  I put back my pieces differently.

Look for a way to lift someone up.  And if that's all you do, that's enough.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Dalai Lama XIV

Not all wounds are so obvious.  Walk gently in the lives of others.

Be the love you never received. - Rune Lazuli

Some of the tiniest moments carry the sweetest memories. - Vicki Reece

Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much arguing, much writing, many opinions;  for opinion in good men is but knowledge in the making. - John Milton

Success is not measured by how well you fulfill the expectations of others, but by how honestly you live up to your own expectations. - Linda Principe

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!


  1. Hi Linda,
    I really enjoyed the pottery leaves video. Always a joy to stop in. Love the quotes.

  2. It is amazing to see the bird feeding the fishes. She might be wondering how come her babies taking so long to fly away. Lol!

  3. 'Some of the tiniest moments...', your log on a Monday morning, dear Linda...

  4. Hello and thanks for the inspiration, such a great start to the week. Have a good one, greetings!

  5. Hi Linda, another great collection of videos. I enjoyed them all. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones. xx

  6. Thank you for this Monday's Shares Linda. Clever Orangutan, is beautiful to see. I wish you a nice new week.

  7. Hello Linda, I always look forward to your Monday shares. I wonder what makes the little bird feed the fish. I do hope she doesn’t think they are all her babies – she will be there forever! I’ve just watched it repeatedly, fascinating.
    The pottery leaves took me back to my school days where we did exactly that in art classes. I had forgotten all about it until visiting you today.
    Have a lovely week, hugs Barbara


  8. I love to take long walks in nature. I also like such trips.
    Love people, not things - it's very important.
    Greetings :)

  9. Good Morning Linda. You know, I'm not a great lover of cats and when I saw that Sphynx cats, I thought it looked a bit scary. Can't explain it I'm afraid. Maybe I was scared by a cat when very young?

  10. Wonderful videos, Linda! I really loved the Pottery Made with Leaves. What a bright idea!

  11. Hi, Linda. Love the orangutan video. They're so fun to watch.

  12. Bonjour Linda,
    Toujours un plaisir que de venir te rendre une petite visite. Tout est bien joli.
    Belle fête de l'Action de Grâce.

  13. Pottery made with leaves, looks like fun and the pottery is beautiful. I enjoyed reading the inspirational quotes.
    Have a wonderful Monday Linda and thank you.

  14. Hello, wonderful video. The bird feeding the fish is amazing. Love the hummingbird. All animals are good therapy for people. Happy Monday and enjoy your new week ahead.

  15. The orangutang made me smile.

  16. Oh, my Dearest, thank you for another so wonderful, outstanding post of yours, you never fail to win my heart both with the videos and the quotes you share !

    Wishing you a most lovely Monday and new week ahead,
    with sincere gratitude

    XOXO Dany

  17. "Find joy in the ordinary" me plaît beaucoup Linda..


  18. These videos are wonderful, especially the one with the bird feeding the koi and the orangutan playing with the young man! It would appear that the animals we tend to think are not very smart and don't have real feelings are much the same as we are with the same needs and desires and feelings.

    So many great posters too...the one about forgiving oneself was just what I needed to see today.

    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  19. Love the bird feeding the fish. That was adorable.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays because you have so much aww today.

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

  20. Enjoyed the goodies this morning dear Linda. I hope that you have a wonderful week. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  21. The Dalai Lama rocks! Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

  22. I always enjoy your post today I learned a few things. Great videos and wonderful quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful week. Madeline

  23. Lovely post!
    Happy new week!:))


  24. Walk gently in the lives of others - I wish people would recognize that.
    Have a good week

  25. Always enjoy your posts Linda and another cracker. Hope you have a happy week, take care Diane

  26. Having problems with posting so I will try I loved this post Linda...
    You never disappoint us with the videos and quotes...:)

  27. Love the video of the bird feeding the fish.

  28. Lovely videos. I like a lot. Hummingbird is so beautiful. Greetings.

  29. That’s the cutest video of the bird feeding the fish. The leaf pottery is beautiful and that lady very creative and talented. I have always loved orangutans, even more now I saw this video, if that’s possible :) Fascinating connection between sunshine and smiling. You find the most interesting videos. The facts about the hummingbird and the cat, fascinating. And always enjoy the wise words, read them and then I think about them. Great post as always Linda, have a great week :)

  30. Funny video, the one with the orangutan!
    As for the quote with the two principles for a happy life, I will say this : there's nothing wrong with loving things, but it's all wrong using people.

  31. Coucou douce Linda, tout est tout beau, superbe!!! Bise, bonne soirée toute douce!

  32. Great post,photos are amaizing! If you want that we follow each other let me know by leaving a comment on my last post -->

  33. Hello Linda! Yay! It's Linda-Time! : )

    Aha! A Cardinal, those have special meaning to me. Loved the way he feeds the fish...Isn't it great the animals on these videos how they interact? It's fascinating. That Orangutan is adorable too, what a personality!

    The leaf bowls are beautiful, she makes it look so easy!

    The video on the power of sunshine is very good, my daughter, Michelle and I were talking about the need for vitamin D to fight against depression, she has had to take D3 supplements even via her nutritionist.

    Your quotes are very, very timely. Fantastic. I loved them.

    I hope you are doing well and please know I have been praying about your home situation. So glad to see your Monday post! It really brings a smile to my face, and know your pleasant attitude is so contagious and that is a Blessing!

    Love to you and a hug dear friend.

  34. Hello Linda, love the video of the bird feeding the fish - how amazing!
    Beautiful quote photos too, have a great week :D) xx

  35. Is it your Thanksgiving in Canada now? Happy holiday to you!
    I loved that video of the Orangutan. How amazing is that? And loving people, that's always the way to go.
    God bless,

  36. That is so right about how you behave after church being your testimony. Hope you have had a lovely Thanksgiving Day!

  37. There's a zoo not far from my work and the orangutans are my favourite to visit.

  38. Linda, There is nothing so pitiful looking than a juvenile cardinal! We marvel at their ugliness in their early months and then we marvel at their beauty when they mature. I will admit that I've never seen a bird feeding a fish though...

    We actually have a "leaf" candy dish. Love that orangutan trading items or just playing catch with the human! Sunshine...those days when almost everyone is in a better mood! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  39. You were celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada weren't you? Happy Day to all our neighbors! You have such wonderful shares. I have been missing for a bit. Arguing with my two blogs trying to make sense of why one works and one won't! I may or may not have figured it all out! Enjoying the smiles here and everywhere today. Thank you. ENnoy a wonderful week and thanks for all of this .

  40. Hello Linda! The video Pottery Made with Leaves makes me to think to do the same pottery!
    Another one of Orangutan is amazing: two Russian men tried to feed him and Orangutan fed them too.
    Thank you!

  41. Wonderful picks, Linda! The fish feeding bird is amazing and the orangutan was fun to watch as well.
    Have a lovely week!

  42. Hello Linda, the pottery made with leaves is just wonderful!
    Have lovely days,
    Best regards, Ida

  43. Loved the laid back Orang-utan Linda and the bird feeding the fish - wonderfully bizarre.

  44. Hope you have had a lovely Thanksgiving Day!


  45. You're always one decision away from a totally different life. I like this sentence, but what to do i don't know.
    Greetings :)

  46. Hello Linda
    Some amazing video choices again, thank you.
    I hope your week is going well.

    I always enjoy this time of year and seeing all the glorious Autumn colours.

    All the best Jan

  47. The Dalai Lama quote really speaks to me.
