A Good Recipe for a Happy New Year
Take twelve whole months.
Clean them thoroughly of all
bitterness, hate and jealousy.
Make them as fresh and clean as
possible...Now cut up each month
in twenty-eight, thirty, or thirty-
one different parts, but don't
make up the whole batch as once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of
these ingredients...Mix well into
each day one part of faith, one
part of patience, one part of
courage, and one part of work.
Add to each day one part of hope,
faithfulness, generosity and
kindness. Blend with one part
prayer, one part meditation and
one good deed. Season the whole
with a dash of good spirits, a
sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play
and a cupful of good
humor...Pour all of this into a
vessel of love. Cook thoroughly
over radiant joy, garnish with a
smile and serve with quietness,
unselfishness and cheerfulness.
You're bound to have a
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
