Inspirational, Motivational and Courageous

From My Vickie
I try so hard to be worthy of the love and friendship I receive from my family friends and my four legged companions. 
Joining the world of blogging has brought to my attention so many lovely spirits. 
I think, today,. I want to send out a challenge to any of those of you who have found inspirational blogs that mean a lot to you and share them with the rest of us.
I am picking just five.  There are so many.
So if you have the time and want to check them out, come on along.
One of the newest I have found is called

Chrissywhale  she has a beautiful quote for today.
of course there are my regulars
Gospel of Goose  and the Sunday Sermon from
Boondocks and the love shack
my all time, lift your spirits and bringing nature to my front door
Rompin and Rollin in the Rockies
and finally Penny the Internet star who helps us all understand first hand how to deal with depression and anxiety.

There are so many more inspirational sites out there, How about sharing some of yours. 

Bert and My Vickie and the ever popular Allred

Thank You

GOOSE said...

Really liked the picture. The caption is perfect!

I’m not a gooshie, gooie dog (OK I really am but don’t tell anyone) but Bert AND Your Vickie are and inspiration to me and I know for a fact you most defiantly are to my MOM. No matter what is going on we can always count on being uplifted and a smile on our faces and in our hearts by the things you post. You two are keepers.
Beautiful Blessing to you and Your Vickie :)

Umm... Bert. How come your eyes are closed, buddy? Do you know that cat is next to you??!?!!?
PS: Great blog choices! We would rank your blog in our top 5!

Bert! Did Your Vicki have to give you a tranquilizer to be that close to Allred?? BOL!! Actually, a very beautiful picture. We agree with Goose and the Army of Four - you're definitely in our top 5!! As is Romping and Rolling. We'll go check out the others.
We do really like "Wilf the PON Discovers France". Wilf was diagnosed with cancer a year ago last September and has been taking it one day at a time since. There's a humorous cast of characters and Wilf's human is a dry, witty Scot. You'll like it. France is beautiful!!

The Cat From Hell said...

Mommy get one in her emails everyday that really makes her feel inspired. It ias Wylde Women's Wisdom. Ther sends her a email every day. Today:
What is extraordinary but
ordinary times itself.
The change more in the story
that goes along with the multiplication
than the actuality.
If you stop, breath in and breathe out and
breath in again,
you may catch the ordinary sparkling behind a veil you just now notice -
In time to pull it back and enjoy.
Tammy Vitale
And Bert, yous inspires me!

KB said...

Thanks to your Vickie, Bert, I just found a couple more blogs that I like!

I am ever so honored to be included on that list... I don't belong for I have nowhere near the courage or panache that those other blog writers have. But, thank you.

I too love the picture. The look on Bert's face is priceless!

Hi Vickie and hi Bert,
Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell and modest internet star, taking over my human's keyboard :)
What a thoughtful and heartfelt posting. Indeed the love shared amongst family, friends and us non-judgemental animals, is powerful and inspirational. As is the positive interaction we share within the great blogging community.
Oh behalf of my human Gary aka Klahanie, we are truly honoured that you would include us in such a list. We shall duly check out those other fine bloggers you have included. Must be wonderful just like y'all :)
Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, your way, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star xx
