Ali's Recipe for Life

What would you like people to think about you when you are gone?

“I'd Like for them to say.
He took a Few Cups of Love.
He Took One Tablespoon of Patience,
One Teaspoon of Generosity,
One Pint of Kindness;
He Took One Quart of Laughter,
One Pinch of Concern
And then he mixed Willingness
With Happiness.
He Added lots of Faith,
And He Stirred it up Well.
Then He Spread it over A span of
A Lifetime, And he Served it to
Each and Every Deserving
Person He Met.”
