Beautiful Women Month

I received this in an email from one of my Aunts. I've always loved Audrey Hepburn and I wanted to post this on my blog to share with those that stop by to read.
Did you know that it's Beautiful Women Month? Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her 'beauty tips.'
It was read at her funeral years later .

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 fingers 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 hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

OH How I love that! I want to make a poster of it and hang it somewhere in my home.
