Gather all the ingredients together,
So that they are close at hand!
Get a clean cloth and wipe the bowl clean
Of any **dust** from the past
Take maturity, respect, and friendship, and stir gently
Add unlimited amounts of compassion and kindness and mix well
To this, add caring by the handfuls and fold in trust
Continue stirring gently, adding listening,
Honesty, and large amounts of communication
Slip in some dreams, goals,
and firm pieces of keeping promises
Bake in a home filled with peace, beauty and serenity.
Before you taste the finished product
Sprinkle liberally with patience, love, and a touch of spice.
Serve very hot with imagination on the side.
