Stir in Good Will and Sweet Content
and Precious Memory.
Add Kindness, Helpfulness and Joy;
of Gratitude don't spare;
Then drop by drop Love's Essence sweet,
and Praises freely share.
And don't forget such spices rare
as Laughter, Smiles and Fun,
Taste often for the best results,
('Tis sweet to mince upon).
Now add a Thankful Heart and then,
the recipe's complete,
Your "Merry Christmas" all will like … so try the season's treat.
