“‘What day is it?’, asked Winnie the Pooh.
‘It’s today,’ squeaked Piglet.
‘My favorite day,’ said Pooh.”
~A.A. Milne from The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Saturday is usually everyone’s favorite day of the week: it’s usually sleep-in day, catch-up day, play-hard day, enjoy-everything-about-it day.
Yup, me too.
A day to meander, gaze off into the horizon, acknowledge one’s blessings and then fall asleep blissful in the food bowl.
Saturday is the one day of the week I keep unplanned from start to finish with no particular choreography or have-to places to go.
Just a day to be.
I know Pooh and Piglet are right. Any day is our favorite day simply because it is Today: a new start, a time to celebrate, an undeserved gift of time to be unwrapped the moment our eyes open in the morning.
Today. A time to be.
