tea and honey

“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today," said Pooh.

"There there," said Piglet. "I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.” 

 A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Beth sent me a little tea and honey the other day, in the form of some good books, all wrapped up in pretty paper. It was a lovely surprise on a day when I was feeling a bit post-traumatic stress-y. To quote another Milne philosopher, “Friendship," said Christopher Robin, "is a very comforting thing to have.”

I love all the sweet little things that Pooh and his friends say.
