Happy Mother's Day -Time Tested Beauty Tips

Roses compliments of my fantastic family (Jeff, Dorothy, J.W, Jayde,
Hailey, Annika, and Newbaby 2010 ver. 4.0)

I just love this poem written by Sam Levenson
for his granddaughter.

It was also Audrey Hepburn's favorite poem as well.
If you haven't read it, you are in for a treat.


Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out 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 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 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!

Have a Blessed Mother's Day.

God morning dearest Barb....your family is your diamond in the jewel of your life, and I so love Audrey's perspective on beauty.....I know that she struggled with her looks and yet was and is still the most beautiful of women and souls. We seek real beauty when we struggle so, and I so admire that. Have the most wonderful mother's day dear Barb; you deserve so much. Much love, Anita

Happy Mother's Day! It will be hard for your husband today, being the first one without his mother. I will pray for him. I can tell from your blog that you are a loving mother and I may this be a beautiful day for you.
