"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.”
        ― A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Anticipation of the honeyed bites of life.
My wish for my grandchildren and the young at heart:  

The ability to twirl your days until you linger in rounds of sweet confection, in anticipation of the honeyed nibbles of life. 
      ------G. Hill
Ready for that perfectly symmetrical snowflake to land!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.     
       ------Jeremiah 29:11
Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.   
  -----Matthew 18:3
