I have always loved Winnie the Pooh. It brings back so many memories of childhood. I know I am not very old, but that silly old bear makes me smile to this day. I watched all the movies they made for every season. I was there on every adventure, marching beside Christopher Robin and Rabbit, with Winnie the Pooh on my shoulders.
Those were the good old days in the hundred acre wood. But there was one very frightened little creature that I loved more than any of them. Piglet.
He had a very big heart for such a small animal. And for those of you that don’t know, he had a movie of his own. Piglet’s Big Movie was the thing that taught me most about friendship.
You see, in the movie, Piglet runs away. He tries to find something that he can do that would be of use to his friends. I think it was so he could be just like them. But Piglet wasn’t like any of them. He kept a scrapbook of his friends and their adventures together. It was that scrapbook that lead Winnie and the rest of the gang back to Piglet. They never gave up on him.
I will never forget the music from that movie though. The artist performing the soundtrack was Carly Simon, a well known singer of the time. Her voice was absolutely perfect for all the pieces. You should look up that soundtrack!
The songs might sound a bit corny, but the lyrics resonate with meaning for all ages. If I learned anything from Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, it’s that you never give up on your own friends. They will always come back to you no matter what. As long as you are willing to do the same.
