A Winnie the Pooh Day

Today was a blustery day, at least that’s what Winnie the Pooh would call it. People walking were struggling against the wind, looking as though they had had a touch too much to drink. Tree branches and a few trees were coming down all over town. And to top it all off, most of  the town lost its hydro, Out in the rural areas there are some places still without power.

This certainly was a Winnie the Pooh day. Before I go any further, I should mention that Winnie the Pooh is one of my heroes, mainly because he is a bear of little brain. He is a simple soul who views life in a uncomplicated way.

He would see a blustery day as a day to go fly a kite, and enjoy the day. If hydro is lost, don’t see it as a hardship, but as an adventure.

It is my belief that we often complicate life and in doing so we rob ourselves of much of the joy that is available to us on a daily basis. It would be so much better if we could be more like my hero and take life one day at a time.  So instead of worrying so much we can go looking for heffalumps! Wouldn’t that be fun?

About faithfullyhis

My name is Charles Quail and I am a retired Baptist pastor who lives in Dunnville,a small town southeast of Hamilton, Ontario. I also write a weekly column for our local newspaper, The Sachem. It is a column that I have been writing for about eight years. I am married and have two grown daughters. My best buddy was my dog Max, who is now chasing bunny rabbits in sky. I miss him terribly. My reason for wanting to write a blog is friends have told me that this is the next logical step in my writing career. My hope and prayer is that many will be both challenged and blessed by what I write.
