A very good friend of mine who has been fantastically supportive over the last year has, during some of my most difficult times, sent me a wonderful quote that has helped me summon more fortitude than I would have been able to otherwise. It goes like this: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think” – Winnie the Pooh. What a perfect thing to say. Today, during a trying time for her, I thought I would return the favor. Making sure I got the quote just right, I asked The Googles. Oh, boy. I found my friend was only quoting half of what Mr. Pooh was saying. The rest took my breath away.
“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.”
-Winnie the Pooh
