Oh Audrey!

My little brother and his girlfriend sent this to me so I couldn't resist posting it!

Snopes says she didn't write it but I find them lovely so here you go:
a list of beauty tips (not) from Audrey.

1. For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

2 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

3. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

4. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. (This one sort of cracks me up I can just see sticky fingers and a bright happy smile from some little person but definitely not more beautiful hair--ha!)

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

6. 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.

7. 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 is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. 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 only grows with passing years.

May you feel truly beautiful today!
Happy Monday and welcome to May!

I always wanted to be like Audrey Hepburn! It turns out I am closer to having the grace of Jerry Lewis. The tips are wonderful!
