E is for Eeyore. A-Z Blogging


Eeyore is my husband’s favorite Winnie the Pooh character. I am more of a Winnie girl, myself, but I can see the appeal. We all have Eeyore days. Days when the rain seems to be pouring just where we are, even though the sun was out two minutes ago. Days when nothing goes right. Days when no one seems to notice us.

But Eeyore’s friends still love him, even at his most pessimistic. AND…Eeyore is sometimes the voice of sense and clarity speaking over all the Hundred Acre optimists with a kind of clear-eyed vision. Face it, in a Wood with a bear who thinks mud will make him look like a bee, and a kid who shoots said bear’s balloon with a pop-gun, ya need someone with a little sense. That’s what Eeyore is in the Hundred Acre Woods. The (occasionally less than sunshiny) voice of sense. The cloud in the blue sky. You have to love him. Especially on days when it’s raining on you.



  1. This almost made me cry! Weird, but it’s a good cry. I’ll tell you why. I was even considering doing Eeyore for “E” because my sister always says I’m Eeyore and she’s Tigger. Well, I can see similarities in both but also vast differences, but I always feel like she’s saying I’m a downer when she compares me to Eeyore. Your description portrays him in such a positive light that you made my day! Thank you, thank you!

    • He is the 100 Acres voice of reason! Glad you enjoyed it

      • I’m gonna have to show this to my sister. haha

  2. I love Eeyore! Rhonda- don’t let it get you down, he’s the best of the bunch;) “Voice of reason.” Don’t all groups of overly cheery people need one?
    I remember one episode where they were at the library trying to find Eeyore a poem (or maybe it was a book?)… anyway, they found him a poem, and I thought it was absolutely beautiful, full of all the purple emotions that he has 🙂

    • Thanks, for the kind words, Kaye! I’ll have to go look for that poem, too!

  3. Love Eeyore, aren’t we all a little like Eeyore on some days? Good post

  4. my daughter loves tiger but I am more of an eeyore fan as all i want to do is hug him! great post!

    • Eeyore definitely needs hugs! Thanks for stopping by.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
