Recipe For A Happy New Year


Bell


Take 12 fine, full-grown months.

See that these are thoroughly cleansed from all old memories of bitterness, rancor, hate, and jealousy.


Flowers


Cut these months into 30 or 31 equal parts.

(This batch will keep for one year.  Do not attempt to make more than one batch at a time .... many people spoil the entire lot in this way).


Flowers


Prepare one day at a time as follows:

Into each day, put 12 parts of faith, 11 of patience, 10 of courage, nine of work (some people omit this ingredient and spoil the flavor of the rest), eight of hope, seven of fidelity, six of open-mindedness, five of kindness, four of rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad ... don't do it), three of prayer, two of meditation, and one of well-selected resolution.


Flowers


If you have no conscientious scruples, add a teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.


Flowers


Pour love liberally into the whole, and mix with vim.

Cook thoroughly in a fervent heat.

Garnish with a few smiles and a sprig of joy; then serve with quietness, unselfishness, and cheerfulness.

A Happy New Year is a certainty!
