The Secret Ingredient



“Love is

the secret ingredient

to every good meal,

every good life,

every happy heart,

and every healthy soul.”


– Joseph J. Mazzella


A dash of patience and tolerance

A pinch of forgiveness

A heaping pile of kindness

And most importantly, add the secret ingredient, love.

No matter how you mix it,

no matter whose recipe you use;

Grandmas, Moms, or Uncle Joe’s

learn the lesson that too many cooks

and too much love

can never ruin this recipe,

the recipe for a happy life.

Love is the secret ingredient.

Love is helping someone love themselves.
