A Recipe for Beauty

The other day, I was with my good friend Bethany, and she reminded me of this recipe for beauty that I love.

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 their 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 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.

                                     -Audrey Hepburn
