Beauty Tips

I wanted to share this with my niece, Angee, and when I read it again, I still love it so much I wanted to share it will all of you:

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 or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Contrary to what some may think, Audrey Hepburn did not write this beautiful poem, Sam Levenson did. Levenson wrote "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild, and it just so happened to be one of Audrey's favorite poems. She read it to her children on the very last Christmas Eve she spent with us here on Earth.


  1. Thanks, Lacy. I really like this.

  2. I really liked this too. I just pray that my daughters grow up with that frame of mind. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hooray for your last child in pre-school!! (A few posts back)

  4. This is so inspiring. Makes me think that if I try I could be beautiful. :) I WILL try. Thank you.

  5. I am so glad I got back from my way to long vacation in time to read this post! I so needed it. I am so glad to be back to be inspired by all my blog friends. Thanks for sharing. :)

  6. this is so true. it's the good things that we do that make us beautiful on the inside which in turn radiate on our outsides. that wasn't so eloquent but you know what i mean :)
