I choose an area of my house to “purge” each week, I hate clutter and don’t have much of it, however, I do have a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to books…it’s a rainy Sunday and the girls are still sleeping so I thought I’d sort my “library” and I found a book my sister had given to me that she had given my grandmother a number of years ago.
Granny was a lover of Pooh Bear 😀
The title of the book is “Pooh’s Little Instruction Book“.
It’s a really fun book to look through, full of reminders and suggestions on how to live a good life – Winnie – The – Pooh style.
Like this one:
“Always watch where you are going. Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the Forest that was left out by mistake.
“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you . You have to go to them sometimes.”
and quite possibly my favorite:
“Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.”
Happy Sunday and don’t forget
“A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference”

And I want a jar of honey to go with this. Happy Sunday, Angie.
Unfortunately on my way over to visit you I forgot the first rule of carrying honey…”don’t stop and eat it along the way” 😀 😀
Enjoy your day!
What! you ate it all???? 😆
Yup, all of it, all gone 😀
That watching the river quote is completely beautiful!!!!
It says so much in such a silly way, that’s what I love about “Pooh wisdom” 😀
Some great ‘Pooh’ wisdom there. I’ve always loved ‘Pooh’!
Pooh Bears wisdom is the some of the best!!
I looooove Winnie the Pooh! Great post! 🙂
Me too and Thank you!
I need you to come to my house and help me purge 🙂
I am really the opposite of a hoarder…constantly getting rid of stuff. hmmm??? 😀
I don’t hoard but I could be better at getting rid of stuff 🙂
I have an ongoing bag for stuff, sometimes a box tucked in the corner of my closet…:D
Love this! And think i even had this at some point. There’s never enough Pooh! Thanks Angie 🙂
I used to love Pooh bear growing up. He’s full of silly wisdom that actually makes sense. 😀
