Take 12 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 28, 30 or 31 different parts, but don’t make up the whole batch at once. Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.
Mix well into each day 1 part of Faith, 1 part of Patience, 1 part of Courage and 1 part of Work.
Add to each day 1 part Hope, Faithfulness, Generosity and Kindness.
Blend with 1 part Prayer, 1 part Meditation and 1 Good Deed.
Season the whole with a dash of Good Spirits, a sprinkle of Fun, a pinch of Play and 1 cup full of Good Humour (www.Joe-ks.com).
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.
Makes 1 pleasant year.
