Thoughtful Thursday: It’s Today!


We can always count on our friend Winnie the Pooh to put things in perspective for us.

The beloved fictional character was the creation of A. A. Milne. Pooh made his debut in the book “Winnie-the-Pooh,” published in 1926 and followed by “The House at Pooh Corner” in 1928. Mr. Milne’s character also was featured in his books of poetry, “When We Were Very Young” and “Now We Are Six.”

Winnie the Pooh was brought to life in movies and short feature films by Disney, giving a face and voice to the lovable bear and the many friends around him.

Through his innocent charm, Pooh gave us many other delightful and inspirational lessons:

On Living Without Someone You Love: “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

On Friendship and Love: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

On Caring: “Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.”

On Forgetfulness: “I did know once, only I’ve sort of forgotten.”

On Courage: “It is hard to be brave, when you’re only a Very Small Animal.”
