Sometimes words make me cry ! ( even Winnie the Pooh !)

Well yes i know what you are thinking everything makes me cry.I cant stand to hear that song you are my sunshine my only sunshine cause when it gets to please don't take my sunshine away that's it I'm gone.I used to love that song " I wish everyday could be the first day of spring" and then my father went and died on the first day of spring so if i start singing that one i end up in tears. Bette Midlers from a distance and the allelujah song ( oh god i love that song).Yup i guess I'm just a sap.Words have always meant a lot to me, Some people call me the Wordsmith i don't mind i like that title.I am a writer and a reader i was born that way.I can be reduced to tears reading a book or i can end up laughing aloud like a loony.Reading is the cheapest holiday you will ever take.
It will however take you far away to another time and and another place.
As a young girl i once wrote a poem that ended
"For i am a writer of fairy tales
                and once upon a time all alone in a tower
                                                         a princess was waiting ,
                                                                                   and waiting...
                                                                                          and waiting...."
Little did i know then just how long some princesses have to wait
and sometimes a knight doesn't show up at all and she must rescue herself.
And i really do pity the fat ugly princesses of this world cause its bad enough when you are a commoner
and you dare to be born plain.Anyway i do so love quotes and words.I have passed this trait on to my sons all four love quotes and a few of them keep journals and are themselves wonderful writers.
Ah we may lack many things in our family but imagination we have in bucket loads. I want to know since when did Winnie the Pooh get so wise and deep .That Pooh  he is a real thinker ,i think should we meet i would like him an awful lot. Id probably love Eeyore too and i bet my bottom dollar that Rainy days and Mondays always get him down.

Oh I am so with you, I cry at the drop of a hat and sometimes childrens stories just can't be read!! I love words too, lets face it it would be pretty dull without them!
Funny as I was reading your post, Rainy days and Mondays was playing on my laptop in the background...perfect timing!
Have a truly wonderful day,
Kiss Noises Linda

I too am a Wordsmith and I love the idea of being so - I love words, quotes, crossword puzzles, anagrams, acronyms - anything words.

And I love Winnie The Pooh who certainly did become so very wise.

I like this quote by Pooh Bear:

“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever”

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and words.
