Wednesday- The Recipe of Me

The recipe of me- by Sandi Kirk

1 part childhood memories

1 part teenage drama

dash of mistakes

stir well  then  place in a GIGANTIC sealed bag in the freezer to chill

in an adult sized bowl  mix equal parts of

tears of pain and tears of joy,

hope and heartbreak

growth and loss

devastation and elation

blend on hard work for a couple of decades.

separate pride from humility and throw away the pride.

leave judgement at the store, and instead take home the hard choices as this will make the recipe easier to sleep with at night.

pull out chilled bag from youth mix it with last 2 decades dry mix,  and gently press into a firmly formed shell  but be careful not to crack it.

*some chilled childhood baggage does not fit into the adult shell, dispose of it or your recipe may become unstable.

Bake in an oven of realization that you can not control the actions, thoughts or opinions of others  for another decade or until crows feet appear.

Remove, and let cool on a rack of thankfulness for those that you have ever held dear.

Top generously with wonderful understanding friends and family.

Serve with hugs, love, memories and hope.

    That was fantastic Peachy. Right now I’m not in the frame of mind for that kind of instrospection. My recipe would read: 2 parts piss, 1 part vinegar.
