Even though Eeyore could be downright gloomy, I love this quote of his: It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine. These are words to live by throughout the year—and I find them especially meaningful in the clutches of a long, cold, and dreary winter. Just thinking about Winnie the Pooh and his friends makes me smile; I just can’t help it. This Sunday, January 18, is the birth date of A. A. Milne, the author who transported his readers to the Hundred Acre Woods and into the lives of Christopher Robin and his animal playmates: endearing Pooh Bear; bouncy Tigger; shy Piglet; gloomy Eeyore; fussy Rabbit; wise Owl; and kind Kanga and her baby, Roo. Thank you, Mr. Milne!
