My eye spotted the card and I grabbed for my pen and small moleskin notebook, my ‘must haves’ for writing:
A great many things can be solved with kindness – even more with laughter – but some things just require cake
Yes! That’s it.
Cake – with its pretty facade and sugary center; cake with its sweetness and joy; cake and all that it is.
Some things just require cake.
In a world that vacillates between the extremes of far too practical and outrageously extravagant, cake is that happy middle ground. No one ever needs cake. But it sure can put a different spin on the day.
Cake whispers ‘special’; cake says ‘stop’; cake shouts ‘sit down for awhile’.
I don’t know what your life holds, but perhaps you’ve tried kindness and laughter. Maybe today is about cake….You decide!
Blogger’s Note: Or maybe you’re an ice cream person….just try melted nutella on vanilla ice cream. Some things just require nutella on ice cream.
