Taking a lesson from Pooh

View from my window ... "Living the Dream"

View from my kitchen

“What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.

~ A.A. Milne

At this time of year it’s easy to be run over by the busy bus, isn’t it?

School is in high gear, and so is the A to Z Blogging Challenge (which for some reason I thought I should enter). I cringe at the tasks before me.

The kitchen needs cleaning and so do the floors. The weeds are growing busily, another chapter begs to be written, and the laundry basket leers at me, threatening to ruin my afternoon. (Muahahaha)

And yet, as Pooh says, it’s today. “My favorite day.”

Is it? I gaze out the kitchen window at the gray and the green. The sun is trying to shine. And I realize that Pooh is right.

Every today—every single one—is my favorite day. I am simply too busy to see that.

Thank you, Pooh.

    Years ago I told a friend that I pretty much expect that anytime I could be hit by a bus or die in my sleep. She was horrified and speculated on why I was so negative. This is my default emotional setting–Laura can confirm this–and I think it works well for me in that every day may just be the last day.

    Gotta enjoy “it” while you can.



Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
