Give me patience when little hands
Tug at me with ceaseless small eemands.
Give me gentle words and smiling eyes
And keep my lips from hasty, sharp replies.

Let me know in weariness, confusion or no8ise.
obscure my vision from life's fleeting joys.
That when in years to come my house is still
Beautifus memories its rooms may fill.


Take time to WORK- it is the price os success.
Take time to THINK-it it the source of power
Take time to PLAY-it is the secret of youth.
Take time to READ-it is the foundation of knowledge.
Take time toWORSHIP-it is the highway of reverence and washes the dust of the earth from our eyes.
Take time to LOVE-it is the one sacrament of life.
Take time toHELP and ENJOY FRIENDS-it is the source of happiness.
Take time to DREAM-it hitches the soul to the stars.
Take time to LAUGH-it is the singing that helps with lif's loads.
Take time to PLAN-it is the secret of being able to have time to take time for the first nine things.

šThis is a very nice addition to any cookbook.
