I love this quote from A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh.
To be honest, I pretty much love all the Pooh books. And to be even more honest, I didn’t read them until I was an adult. Like an adult, adult. Not a young adult.
We’re talking grown-children-almost-out-of-the-house adult.
Anyway, I fell in love with ’em. So when I jumped into Pinterest, I included a board of quotes and this quote was one of the first I pinned (on Book Stuff). And now, about once a week or so, handfuls of people will pin this quote onto their boards and I get all these emails telling me they pinned it or “favorited” it.
And I don’t know what to do. WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO WITH PINTEREST?
I have no idea. If you do, please pass it along. ‘Cause, so far, I’ve done nothing.
Well, except read my quote about a gazillion times. And that’s pretty okay with me.
I just spent an hour online this afternoon, trying to find a Winnie the Pooh thank you note.
You see, a while back, a friend (okay, it was Debra Mayhew) sent me a thank you note and I loved that thank you. I loved what it said on the outside as well as the inside. Here’s the note:
I remembered it well, but I thought it was a note card, when in fact, it was an actual thank you card. Which might account for the fact that I couldn’t find it online. Also, Debra sent me that card in 2011.
THREE years ago.
I can barely remember three hours ago, and yet I remembered that card after three years. And I finally remembered that I’d stashed it into a slot in my desk.
In the end, I ordered thank you notes that would tie in to the theme of my blog. They’re fine thank you notes, and I hope they’ll get here soon. I have a couple people I need to thank and an email just won’t do
Especially after the lesson I learned today: It truly is the thought that counts.
