“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
“It’s the same thing,” he said.
It’s A. A. Milne’s birthday, and I can’t think of a better excuse for eating something sweet and taking it slow and rereading a favorite poem or two and having a thoughtful moment and being with friends… all the things we tend to put off for “special” days. Funny how the real business of life gets stuffed in odd moments and carefully designated days.
I say if it’s Milne’s birthday, we celebrate accordingly.
May your day be thoughtful and full of unexpected friendliness!
