Thursday - Want to Feel today? Watch this video!


It will make you feel the whole gamut of feelings. You will cheer - you might cry - but it will leave you with a good feeling - the world has a lot of good going on - you just have to look for it.

Two minutes...



Thought of the day:




A little OREO trivia.



Happy birthday OREO!

People always ask what is in the middle. It's cREam. If you look at the letters of oREo - the RE is part of the word cREam stands for cream and there are two O's - that stand for each side of the cookie - put them together means cream in the middle of two cookies. Did I explain that well enough? The Oreo's out this month have birthday cake flavor in the middle.

It looked as if the players from the other side were cheering, too. Now that's sportsmanship. Lovely.

I saw this young man on the news too. What an awesome team he has. This is a coach that really taught "There is no "I" in TEAM". It is truly a proud moment.

Luv the baby and the fist pump!!

I saw this video when it first aired. Bob Shieffer is my favorite newscaster of all time and has a wonderful way of reporting the news and is always polite, a true gentleman of the old school. It was perfect that it aired on his show. Wonderful stories abound, however, we hear so little of them.

Now that's truly and uplifting video.

Life is good! said...

what an amazing video. me and oreo share a birthday so my friend gave me the birthday ones. don't care much for them, but hey the package is almost empty!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I remember seeing that amazing video before and it still brought tears to my eyes again! I think even the announcer got choked up at the end.

I love Oreos, and that is a tasty looking cake!

Mind if I borrow the stay strong photo and send it to my kids? I love it!

Have a nice Friday and weekend!

What a great video. Hubby and I both enjoyed it.

Knitty said...

Seeing both teams and both sets of fans cheer makes my heart happy. At the first basketball game after the shooting in Ohio last week (two weeks ago?) the opposing team came out wearing t-shirts honoring the school that had experiencing the tragedy. That made me teary eyed. This is people at their best.

Blondee said...

I remember him being on the news. Inspiring story for sure. :)

Susan said...

Awwwwww, that video brought tears to my eyes, Sandie. Way to go! What a kid. Too bad the coach hadn't let him play years before!

Loved your post today. Very inspiring. Susan

Why oh Why do I get too busy for the computer when the BEST stuff is posted? That was wonderful, and I'm passing this link along to a blog friend with an autistic son. FANTASTIC!!

And you just HAD to bring up Oreos. My all-time favorite cookie. I remember the days when I would eat a whole row at one time.
