A Request From My Soul

Do you suppose you might do me a favor?


Leave me your favorite inspirational quote or link to a beautiful song or poem or picture or something else lovely?


I would so appreciate it.


To be trite.


But I really would.


Meanwhile, this is for you:



Alternatively, if you want to leave a link to something funny. My soul would like that too.


So again, for you:

Thank you.

    When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.

    I have nothing poignant or inspirational but I do have a few minutes of funny to make you wish you had squirrels in your pants. http://www.dirtandnoise.com/2010/10/phineas-ferb-aka-bird-deal.html

  3. Laurie Ann says:

    Because I know you have a sense of humor similar to mine, I am emailing you something funny. I’d share it here but it involves a work thing.

  4. San Diego Momma says:

    Those links make a soul happy.
    And trust me…
    Laurie Ann’s thing was hysterical.

    Thanks lovey buggos.

    I’m working on the funny. I have a link I want to forward, but of course I can’t find it.

    My favorite quote:

    “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

    I saw this sign on our weekend away.
    Hubby and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary by hanging out at the Oregon Coast.

    We did not stop. I was afraid he wouldn’t want to leave.


  7. Julia says:

    this is one of my favorite videos…and it’ a beautifl song, too, does that count?

  8. Jennifer says:

    Love that song. And that second video made me laugh. If only. :)

    So for you:

    Inspirational, about writing: I don’t teach writing. I teach patience. Toughness. Stubborness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life. The odd thing is most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point. When you feel global doubt about your talent, that is your talent. People who have no talent don’t have any doubt. –Richard Bausch, from Off the Page: Writers Talk About Beginnings, Endings, and Everything in Between

    Beautiful words from Rilke: Comfort me from wherever you are – alone, we are quickly worn out; if I place my head on the road, let it seem softened by you. Could it be that even from afar we offer each other a gentle breath? –Rainer Marie Rilke

    A pretty, soulful song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZg2sHkujP0

    And now for something funny (she cracks me the hell up): http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/10/god-of-cake.html

  9. Jennifer says:

    Sorry that’s all kinda mashed together. There were spaces between before I hit send, I swear. :)

  10. La Jolla Mom says:

    I got nothing so I’m just sayin’ hi! It’s been one of those days. But I enjoyed reading everyone else’s!

  11. Stefanie says:

    This is one of my absolute FAVORITE quotes.

    “She took the leap and built her wings on the way down.”

  12. Mama Mary says:

    I got the inspiration from Ilina P to post this vid on youtube to give you a laugh. Not sure where Lexi learned her “special” dance move at the end. I hope it makes you laugh. Otherwise maybe you can laugh at the crazy disaster that is my livingroom in this little ditty.

    A soulful quote to follow, at some point…
    Love you SS!

  13. Danielle says:

    Well Ellie and I share the same favorite quote. And sometimes I know dancing may make you happier, so let Spike teach you some moves.

  14. Christina says:

    I love the quote:

    “Well behaved women rarely make history.”

  15. Shana says:

    Words to live by: “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. You don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask off an ‘ole Lone Ranger. And you don’t mess around with Jim.”

  16. Kizz says:

    I love that Etheridge song. Have since the first time I heard it.

    This quote from Henrik Ibsen has been speaking to me for a couple of months, ““A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.”

    And, I know I’m biased, but I think these photos of my dog totally punching above his weight class are very funny (pay no attention to the extra chin I brought along for protection): http://www.flickr.com/photos/31403417@N00/sets/72157625168648843/

  17. we_be_toys says:

    I think my favorite quote is from the Beatles:
    “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

    But James Taylor’s “You Can Close Your Eyes” will make me a puddle of maudlin sentimentality – just in case you need to purge!

    I thought this blog post by Johanna Price was uplifting.

  19. Mama Mary says:

    Oh and the first photo of Lily on my blog post today should make you laugh. Still need more time on a quote. : )

  20. vodkamom says:

    My favorite quote? What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.




  21. San Diego Momma says:

    This was the best post ever i ever did in the history of ever.

    I love all the quotes and the videos and the pictures.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  22. Morgan B. says:

    When I feel down I look up videos of kittens, babies, and hedgehogs on YouTube. It’s pretty effective. And then? I call my therapist.

    If you need his name just shoot me an email. :)

  23. “Who, being loved, is poor?” – Oscar Wilde. I always remind myself how much being loved by someone is really worth, it’s a helpful quote for those moments of weakness when I erroneously think that too many things are missing in my life.

  24. Mary says:


    This is one of my favorite inspirational videos. I hope it picks you up. Enjoy.
