Pooh’s Philosophy

Happiness

Is a red balloon

Floating free

In the wind

Daily finding simple joys

In life’s journey

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! 😊🎈

Childhood Joy

singin' in the rain--Haiku

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! 🙂
