I have 2 beautiful daughters, 20 and 22. I just returned from long term treatment after many failed attempts to gain long term sobriety again. I am ready to share and listen and believe again.

My hero

I just wanted my blog friends to know who my real hero is, Winnie the Pooh. Of course my higher power is a bit above him on my importance list, but I always end up coming back to Pooh. Maybe it's because I am so unlike him. Maybe I am jealous of his simplicity, maybe I would like to live in the 100 acre woods. Wait, that might be considered isolating from humans. :) I do love to collect quotes and just wanted to share a few that have real meaning for me.

Piglet slided up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."

If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.

Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.

"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit.
"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."

I am a bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh
