Friday Favorites, Finds And Fill-Ins – Charlie Chaplin Edition

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had another wonderful week. We just survived a heat wave, had a few days break from the extreme heat, and are now right back into the middle of another heat wave. I am staying indoors, eating a lot of ice cream, and try my hardest to keep cool. What do you do to stay cool?

This week, I ran across an amazing Youtuber named Carie Harling who is a planning champ – I have learned so many tricks from this young woman who is the mother of 7 boys – she is a saint! Anyways, she is the most organized person I can think of, and my inspiration. Check out her channel, and her videos, even if you are not into planning and paper stuff like I am.

Earlier this week, I gushed about the Echo Dot, which is absolutely one of my favorite home tools, I constantly use, from keeping my shopping list to listening to an affirmation.  Check out my review on how I use the Echo Dot as a positive living tool.

I am also very exited about a new series I am starting on my book blog. It is called Friday Freebie – Books And More, features books that are (at least at the time of posting) available for free on Amazon. That is right, free! On top of that, I made this weekly series into a freebie, so that you can share your giveaways, free printables, PDF’s, courses, or anything else that you offer for free with everyone! The rules are simple – just like here, it is a family friendly blog hop. Check it out.

This weeks Friendly Fill-In sentences start with a movie sentence, and to be honest, it took me a while to narrow it down to one answer. Here are the sentences:

1. My favorite line from a film is _______________.

2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is _____________.

3. When I feel down, I                              .
4. If I could                         , I would                           .
Here are my answers:
My favorite line from a film is from Charlie Chaplin’s movie “The Great Dictator”. Actually I love the entire speech, which is why I am including it in a video. It is timeless, but especially important to remember during these turbulent times around the world.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.” – Charlie Chaplin

Other blogs and websites that I visit often tend to be those who either have something to do with planning – like the Charlie Harling’s website,  productivity (anything that saves me time), or something uplifting, such as Inspiration Peak.

When I feel down, I either watch a good movie, read a good romance novel, or listen to an uplifting youtube video. Most of the time, I end up diving deep into action, as soon as I took a few minutes to get over feeling angry, or anxious. Action tends to be my favorite antidote for a bad day.

If I could rid the world of animal abuse, I would. In a heartbeat. But I can’t. So I just try to help those animals that I can, whenever I can.

I am really looking forward to reading your answers to these thought provoking fill-in sentences. Check out McGuffey Readers blog for a list of other blogs who participate in this link up.

And as always,  I want to encourage you to add your own family friendly blog to our link up list. You can add as many links as you like, but we would ask you to visit at least two other blog posts listed and leave a comment.

Thank you, and see you all next week!

  1. I get to work on a cleaning project sometimes when I am upset. It is a good way to expend the energy that being angry or otherwise upset sometimes brings with it.

    Ridding the world of animal abuse as well as people abuse would be wonderful. I don’t know why folks have to be so mean to animals and to each other.

    Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

  2. Thank you for participating, great answers. I had not seen that film or heard that quote- excellent choice. I love your answer to #4, I am glad you are part of the solution 🙂 Have a nice weekend!

    1. I try to be – and yes, you should truly check this movie out – but, I would suggest to read up on the context first. He made that speech when no one was taking the thread that Hitler represented seriously, and was actually ridiculed for speaking out. It is an amazing movie, and speech. Blessings!

      Have a nice weekend as well, Ellen

  3. Thank you for sharing and opening your blog up to link to 🙂 Here are my answers – I honestly don’t watch a lot of films, and if I do, I’m knitting and not really paying attention, lol. Sooo, I can’t answer the first question. I visit Instagram a lot, and MotherEarthNews Magazine online. When I feel down, I run, do yoga, call or text a friend, visit the garden, watch the chickens, knit or bake. Really I have a lot of things I truly love to do, so I pick one and move on. If I could, I would end child abuse/neglect. This eats at my core and sometimes keeps me up at night. I contribute the best I can in our community and volunteer.
