Recently I watched the movie “Christopher Robin”. It was a wonderful example of how sometimes adults forget how to enjoy life because they are so very involved in problems and worries.
I had to pause the dvd quite often to write down various quotes from Pooh and others.
One scene that especially spoke to my heart was when Pooh wanted a red balloon because “red balloons made him happy” and grown up, now burdened down, worldly Christopher Robin, got frustrated and said “ there’s more to happiness than a red balloon”
How sad it is to view life that way.
I am much more inclined to grab a red balloon and dance thru life with Pooh Bear! 😊🎈
As I was hurrying through the dark parking lot to go into the grocery store, I pulled my coat tight around me as it was chilly and rainy. All of a sudden a bright warm feeling entered my heart. There in the midst of it all I heard the sweet voice of a little child singing. Seemingly unaware of the weather, she waited patiently for her mom to load groceries into the car, as she sang a little melody all her own. 🙂 I had to smile. A good reminder to be joyful in all circumstances! 🙂
