We made a special poodle cake for our daughter’s seventh birthday the other week. This has become a bit of a tradition and the younger one had a jungle a couple of weeks back. Over the years we’ve also constructed a Ladybird, Rondavel, Picture Cake and others.
I was reminded tonight, in a phone call, of how easy it is to lose sight of the things that matter. My cousin and her husband to be have care of 5 children. They have little time and work hard to earnt their living. But I was reminded that once you have enough to keep yourself and those around you it’s time to give them some time, because more money is unlikely to be as good a gift.
