- (1) house – can be any size
- (3 – ?) people – can be any number depending on how long you want to wait for the family to be done
- (2 – 4) cups of pets
- (3) ounces of patience
- (2) teaspoons of anger/frustration
- (3) quarts of laughter
- (4) gallons of trust
And last but definitely not least – unlimited amounts of love.
First, open the house and make sure that it will be the right size for your family.
Mix the desired amount of people with the pets carefully so you don’t damage them.
In a separate bowl, stir the love and laughter together. Set aside.
Taking each person separately, evenly distribute the patience and trust ensuring that each one receives an equal amount (Failure to distribute evenly may lead to different recipe! See recipe for “An Impatient Family” for details.).
Carefully open the bottle of anger/frustration. Using a Q-tip, dab small portions of the anger/frustration onto each person.
Lastly, take the love and laughter and sprinkle it all over the house, pets, and people. Let sit overnight.
Voila! Your Perfect Family is complete.
I am forever grateful for the love and support my family has shown over the last few months. As Michael J. Fox once said – “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything!”
Hug your loved ones a bit tighter tonight as you never know what tomorrow will bring.
