It’s good to be GOT

0 Comments 23 May 2010

I am going to begin today making Sundays officially Pooh days.  I find that Winnie the Pooh is quite the philosopher and he and his friends say things that have great meaning and depth.  I have often shared these tid bits with my friends and visa versa and they have never failed to encourage us.

Pooh says, “Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.”  This little quote of Pooh’s is true of poetry and hums, as he calls them, as much as it is true of many other things.  Most importantly, I believe it is true of friendships, true, meaningful friendship.

Friendship is a very  under appreciated and under rated commodity in our world these days, yet it may be one of the greatest treasures we could possess.  When Pooh says that “all you can do is to go where they can find you,” I too believe this gives us insight where friendship is concerned.  It isn’t about location, it is about a frame of mind, a place inside – a heart place.

Where do we go so that we might be found in friendship?  Where does our heart have to be in order to be a friend?  Eleanor Roosevelt says, “Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”  We have to like ourselves and find ourselves worthy of being a friend.  Otherwise our friendships are clouded with envy and insecurity and we are never able to let our guard down and enjoy the relationship.  Our hearts have to be settled to some degree on who we are, our own value and worth before we can give any good part of ourselves away to another.

I know how valuable it is to be “got.”  I also know and have experienced the joy of getting a friend.  And I sincerely do believe that we have to be full, a whole, in our own right…ready to walk alongside someone else with whom we share common interests and joys, before we can be a good friend.  Perfect, completely secure?…of course not, but certainly moving in a positive direction.

Just like the characters in the 100 acre wood, we all have our own little corner of the forest and if we are fortunate, very fortunate, we will be found, we will be “got” because it is indeed, good to be “got.”

things to make you wonder~

“I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them...” Annie Dillard
