Many years ago, when I was quite wee, someone gave me “Pooh’s Birthday Book.”
The book is a collection of quotes from all the A.A. Milne books for each day of the year. The quote for my birthday is:
“There was a moment right before Pooh began to eat the honey which was better than when he was but he didn’t know quite what to call it.”
Even before I knew what to call it, I knew exactly what Pooh meant. I love the waiting for Christmas, the bubble and fizz of anticipation. Enjoy these moments before the day, each and every one.
