A Recipe for Me
by Tetiana M.

Grab your biggest bowl
Mix in intelligence
Add the love
pour in the strength
Lay in the willingness
Douse in the honesty
Sprinkle the fury
Pour in the trust
Mix in respect
Lay the commitment
Add the kindness
Mix in the height
Slap in the adventure
Douse it with good nature
Sprinkle the jokes
And mix it up with cheer.
That’s my recipe.
