Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

My mom sent this poem to me today. I remember reading it a long time ago,
but it was nice to get a reminder of the kind of person I WANT to be...
"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.
