Navroz Mubarak - Happy New Year!

According to the Islamic calender, March 21st is our New Year. 
So I thought I'd share a recipe that has become one of my favorite recipes for the New Year.
I did not come up with this but received it a few years ago.

New Year Recipe 

Take 12 whole months. 
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness, hate and jealousy.
 Make them just as fresh and clean as possible. 

This is Mr. Peacock from our neighborhood! Here he is just strolling down the road!
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 with the following ingredients. 
Mix well into each day 1 part of Faith, 
1 part of Patience, 
1 part of Courage 
and 1 part of Work. 
Here he is checking out my car!!! He is too funny! 
Add to each day, add 1 part Hope, 
1 part Faithfulness, 
1 part Generosity 
and 1 part 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 cupful of Good Humor. 
Here are Mr. and Mrs. Peacock. Ironically, it's the male peacock that has the beautiful feathered tail. The female in comparison is rather plain and simple looking.
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 one pleasant year!   
A happy New Year!
