excuse me for butting in here..but look at your original post. She just looked to the bottom and saw the name (the author of your quote) and just assumed it was your name..being at the bottom like that. In her defense..your given name was not even posted there for her to see to forget! Ido like the recipe though..thanks for the post. And Diane's a nice name too..my sister shares it with you.

Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly cleansed from all old memories of bitterness, rancor, hate, and jealousy.
Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. (This batch will keep for one year. Do not attempt to make more than one batch at a time. Many people spoil the entire lot in this way.)
Prepare one day at a time as follows: Into each day, put twelve parts of faith, eleven of patience, ten of courage, nine of work (some people omit this ingredient and spoil the flavor of the rest), eight of hope, seven of fidelity, six of open-mindedness, five of kindness, four of rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad-don't do it), three of prayer, two of meditation, and one of well-selected resolution.
If you have no conscientious scruples, add a teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.
Pour love liberally into the whole batch, and mix with vim. Cook thoroughly in a fervent heat. Garnish with a few smiles and a sprig of joy; then serve with quietness, unselfishness, and cheerfulness-and a Happy New Year is a certainty.
