A Recipe for Happiness
Take twelve whole months. Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness, hate,
and jealousy. Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.
Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty or thirty-one different parts,
but don't make the whole batch at once. Prepare it one day at a time out of
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 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.
And *of course* share the dish with your favorite canine(s)!
You're bound to have a Happy New Year!
