To my TKW Family,
Another year has passed and another year you’ve allowed me to be a part of your lives. Words cannot convey the heartfelt gratitude I have towards you all. I’m honored and humbled. This is more than just a blog to me, it’s about your allowing me to share my passion and pursue my dreams. You’ve welcome me into your homes, your kitchens and your hearts. We’ve laughed til our sides hurt, we’ve sent love and prayers to one another when needed, we’ve listened when we needed a friend, we’ve bonded; we’ve become a family.
From my heart to yours, thank you!
Here’s to making 2016 our best year yet! Happy New Year! I love you guys! ♥
This poem has been around forever and I absolutely love it. The author is unknown and the title varies. I’m calling this a Recipe for an Amazing Year!
Recipe for an Amazing Year!
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 28, 30 or 31 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 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 and one good deed.
Season with a dash of good spirits, a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of play, and a cupful of good humor.
Mix well into each day one part of faith, patience, one part of courage and one part of work.
Pour all of this into your heart and Cook thoroughly over radiant joy.
Garnish with a smile and serve with quietness, unselfishness, and cheerfulness.
