Kym's Happy Home Recipe

Since today is Kym's birthday I figured I would type in her recipes. Kym is 50 today, and she had her first round of chemo today for stage 4 cancer of the lung that has metastasized and gone to her endocrine glands and pancreas. We are hoping and praying for a miracle, but in the meantime, there is life for her to be lived, and she needs to focus on getting well.
Kym has never been one who enjoyed cooking or baking too much, though she has done both over the years. She prefers to sew or do crafts, to play games on Facebook, and to hang out with her friends. She has made many beautiful keepsakes over the years for others to enjoy~mainly in cross stitch, and I have been the lucky recipient of some very nice pieces, as have my children. She's also made many homemade Christmas ornaments for each one of my children. The first ornaments were made for Tim and Carrie and were made of salt dough. After about 15 years, these fell apart and crumbled. Then she discovered she loved to cross stitch and all other ornaments have been cross stitched.
One of the 'recipes' Kym sent to me around twenty years ago is one on a happy home as she has always loved poems and folksy-style, heart-felt sayings. So I will include this as a tribute to her today for her birthday, and a prayer to God Most High that she will have many years to enjoy her own happy home.
