Each person on this earth has their own recipe,
But my soul soup starts with an intricate broth that has been
Unhurriedly simmered with a lifetime of experiences.
To this unique soup, I add frequent dashes of smiles and laughter
To tame the slow-simmering broth when it becomes too tangy or savory.
And to season away the saltiness of frequently shed tears,
I add several cups running over with personal hope and sweet love,
The personally distinctive ingredients that create my own soul soup.
