Tuesday Tail . . .

A squished pig I mean pug. 





A Father Writes a Confession Letter to his daughter with Down Syndrome.



Yes it is 14 minutes, but you don't have to listen to it all. Start it and chose if you want to listen to it.     Thanks Kelly.

“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

Good reminder, Sandie. And don't worry, I'm behind too. So much to do. Hope you have a good day, Friend.

I loved the video. I'm so happy he made it through the dark into the light. Excellent.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. Scritches to Disco. ♥♥♥

Munir said...

I hope that all is well with you guys. Please take care.

I am so slow in writing that it is not even funny. I write when I get motivation and my mind is strange and it refuses to cooperate me LOL

Sandra said...

i saw the video on TV.. it is a good one

Donna said...

TexWisGirl said...

the time change makes us FEEL behind - even if we're not. no worries!

betty said...

Great quote of Mark Twain; I'm going to come back later today when I have more time to listen to that video, am interested to see what he has to say since I have a nephew with Down syndrome (wonderful young man).

Don't worry about being behind. Just stop where you are at and go forward, don't try to catch up, it might take too long and put you further behind.

Sharon said...

I wish I was a little behind...wait...I mean I wish I HAD a little behind!

I'll be waiting when you catch up!

xo

Ms. A said...

I'll try to come back and watch the video later.

What a cute puggie! I am worried about Tweedles. I hope she will be okay :-(

Betsy Adams said...

Sounds like you are as busy as I am this week… I can NEVER get caught up. Love the video…

Well join the club. I am always behind. Cute little pug. Sorry I didn't' take the time to listen to the video yet. Have a great week.

Shelly said...

What a video and what a cute puggie pic- loved them both!

Nancy Claeys said...

Darn, I can't watch videos -- my connection is way too slow -- but loved the pug. :)

Terri D. said...

Who isn't behind these days?! No worries!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm just getting home from my mini-vacation and trying to catch up on everything! How was lunch with the girls?

Willow said...

Love your squished pug !

NanaDiana said...

I will come back later and watch that video, Sandie, when I have a bit of time. Love the quote by Mark Twain. Blessings- xo Diana

Susan said...

Don't feel badly about being behind, Sandie. I think most of us are in the same boat.

Now I'm going to go check out the video. Thanks for sharing it. Susan

Susan said...

p.s. Just watched the entire video. Riveting, touching, heart-rendering, powerful and a must-see for anyone contemplating aborting a fetus because he/she has Down's Syndrone.

Thanks for sharing that one, Sandie. It's a winner. Susan

Ginny said...

This was a cool film!!! Talk about the power of a smile and laughter! There used to be a show on called "Life Goes On" about a family with a Downs boy, and siblings. It was my favorite show EVER, Patti LuPone was the star.

Theresa said...

What a lovely video! Thanks for sharing it! And the cute puggie!

nancygrayce said...

Don't feel bad....I'm right there with you being behind on EVERYTHING!!!!

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Mark Twain got it right.

I hope you are doing OK, Sandy. Even if you are busy, take some time to breathe.

Rob-bear said...

I hope you are well, Sandie. And I like the quote from Twain.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

Gail Dixon (LaBelle) said...

That quote is so wise and so true! Thank you for sharing that. I could have practiced more kindness with my neighbor yesterday, but their toilet papered trees are messing up my yard! Who doesn't try to clean up after being tp'd? Hope you have a great week! Thanks for reminding me I need to be nicer. :)

TARYTERRE said...

The quote is priceless.

betty said...

Oh geesh, Sandie, I'm glad I came back to watch that video. Of course I ended up crying through it. Such a touching story of his love for her and the bond they developed running all those miles! Thanks for sharing it!

betty

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Great quote and a great video

BECKY said...

Hey Chatty! You, behind on your blog?? Wow, that's unusual...but makes me feel better. Just stopping to say HI! :)

Joyce Olson said...

Sandie,
I will watch the video! Just wanted to stop by and say Hi!-I agree it is the time change, it has thrown us all off!
xx-
Jemma

Dar said...

Just when I think I'm gaining momentum, I loose my stride.
It IS the time change. We're all withya.
Live Life Our Best is all we can do.
No worries, Sweetie.

Jim said...

Hi Sandie ~~ Please don't overdo things. A hello from a busy Chatty works wonders. Just don't feel you have to answer every one. I will pass today.

But I do hope things get better and slowed down a bit for you.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'm way behind, too. I think I just stay that way, although I don't mean to. Hope all is well with you and yours. Take care!

Ann said...

No time to listen to the video this morning, heading off to work soon, Cute dog in that picture though

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandy .. I did what Kelly suggested and started the video - then of course couldn't stop.

Amazing story - thanks so much for sharing with us ..

Don't talk about catching up .. I lost my tail ages ago!!! Love the pug though .. cheers Hilary

mail4rosey said...

That man is so HONEST! Nice video share.

I'm behind too, but I'm working on it. Slow and steady... I'm going to slow (wait, that's not how it goes!!)

Have a great week!

Granny Annie said...

I watched it all:)

Lynn said...

Hope you are OK!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

It is okay to be behind. I have been behind for two years.

Love you...

Sheila

SweetMarie said...

Love this quote! It is so very true!
We're both behind and now the holidays are around the corner. :)
hugs,
Marie

Karen Lange said...

Running behind here too! Always something to do, it seems. :) But we might get bored otherwise! LOL

Happy Wednesday!

Zoe Byrd said...

I think most of us are behind something... I feel your pain!

Annesphamily said...

I am never caught up! But life gets in the way! I just try to catch up in a big way when I stop by by looking over at least three of your posts and everyone else!

Always fun to visit you sweet friend!

Hugs Anne

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I'm behind too, just catching up on Tuesday and here it is Wednesday. Tis the time of year when our busy days are just beginning to really take off.

Journeyin' Lady... said...

I didn't know we should ever get caught up! Life just doesn't seem to make it possible.
Love the pug----so cute.

Lee said...

I'm running behind on everything this week, too. Hopefully tomorrow I will have Chapter Three of my Singapore tale written and posted to my blog! That is my intention, anyway!

Terri Buster said...

Morning! I have missed your posts for some reason..it must be the feed thing. Have a great day Sandie!
