Good afternoon!  Wanted to share this message from A.A. Milne – a conversation between Pooh and Piglet – followed by some of my own thoughts. Wishing you all very well ❤

 

“Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh.

 

There was a pause.

 

“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.

 

“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”

 

“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

 

“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.

 

“Nothing, really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

 

“But goodness,” continued Piglet, “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you. And I’ll always be here for you, Pooh.”

 

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs…he thought that his best friend had never been more right.”

 

 

Today – if it’s a difficult day – I know that you may not have a lot to say. I know that you may also not really want to hear words. But I also know that this space can feel lonely. But you don’t have to be alone. It’s okay to admit you need someone to sit with you in silence. Invite that person into the space with you – sit in silence – and feel the love and companionship of a true friend. Piglet does an amazing job of this 😊
