Making Cake out of Dirt

My two little girls have been playing in our backyard every afternoon lately. We have a very nice weather while some part of the country is freezing cold. Anyways, our backyard is clad with dirt. So, whenever they play in the backyard, dirt is their first choice to have fun. Yesterday, my Evie pretended making cake and putting sprinkles on the cake using pebbles. As I was watching her, I was reminded of when I was a little girl like her. I played the same thing, enjoyed making dirt like it's food. I see the joy in her eyes as she was running the dirt through her tiny hands. I am reminded that the simple things in life are the ones that makes you happy, not the ones that can be bought with money.
