Words of Wisdom

Below are words of wisdom Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips."

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.

We're having crappy weather here so I guess I'll watch Roman Holiday this weekend. I love that movie.

In other news, we're having crappy weather in the northeast but I still managed to have a BBQ indoors last Sunday. We had lots of fun, food but no sunshine. I'm even looking at the forecast and then decide if I will be going into work. As a soccer Mom I am nowing bringing sunscreen, umbrella, hoodie, insect repellant and sunglasses to every game! Sigh!

Enjoy your day everyone!

What a great quote! Audrey Hepburn not only had beauty but she must have had a brain and some soul.

Sounds like you're prepared for any weather! Enjoy your day.
