Thank you Dianne for posting this <3

A few weeks before my husband died, we were looking through an Uno Alla Volta catalog. There was a handmade hanging plaque that had this very quote from Christopher Robin crafted on it. My husband said something to the effect that this was me. I now wished a had paid closer attention to his exact words. He wanted to let me know the depth of my strength, as he would be ending his life soon after...

thank you for posting this video.  When our girls were little, my husband and I used to watch this video all the time.  I just never thought that I would now be living those words.

So true.  I love this message.  I feel him with me every step of the way.. Even on my new journey with a new man. Jonathan (my  late husband) picked the new man in my life and he did a superb job.  I know he loves me SO much.... because of who he sent my way.  Sure, I have a hole in my heart, and I think I always will.  But I can live with it.  It's okay.
