Birthdays and holidays are difficult when you’re not spending money. People often ask what I do about birthdays and the truth is, I never really know until the birthday arrives.

Today is my sister in law’s birthday. Terry and I decided that, as many of our friends now have children, what any parent might like is a day off, so we made this voucher for her birthday. My grandma used to tell me “if you can’t give your money, give your time.” She was discussing giving to the church but, as with many other things she taught me, this has stuck with me and it inspired this gift voucher.

My sister in law was thrilled with the gift and I’m happy that we were able to give her something that she will truly appreciate. And we get to spend some quality time with our awesome nephew. When we do, we’ll post some pictures.
