wise words from a favorite

i am a major humongous audrey hepburn fan. i love her movies i love her style i just really love her. my wedding dress was designed after a dress she wore in the movie sabrina for goodness sake. anyway .. the other day my mother in law sent me an email that included a poem that audrey wrote at some point when asked to share her beauty tips. i think it is so inspiring. it puts reality and true beauty into perspective ..

"for attractive lips .. speak words of kindness. for lovely eyes .. seek out the good in people. for a slim figure .. share your food with the hungry. for beautiful hair .. let a child run his/her hands through it once a day. for poise .. walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. people, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. never throw out anyone. remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. as you grow older you will discover that you have two hand .. one for helping yourself and one for helping others"

happy monday!
