365 Days, Day 175

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.

(Words by Audrey Hepburn written when asked to share her 'beauty tips.' It was read at her funeral years later)

Five tips for a woman....

1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a job.

2. It is important that a man makes you laugh.

3. It is important to find a man you can count on! And doesn't lie to you.

4. It is important that a man loves you and spoils you.

5. It is important that these four men don't know each other. (haha)

Today’s entry is meant to be light-hearted. I will add some of my own “tips” to Audrey Hepburn (with apologies).

For attractive lips – wear bright red lippie!

For lovely eyes, add a few strokes of “Prowl” – some gorgeous sparkly mascara we found. And smile from your heart, as if you mean it and your eyes will reflect this.

For a slim figure, do the housework yourself and take Lily for walkies twice a day. Have chocolate now and then, but not too much…

For beautiful hair – add a dash of colour! (what else could I say)

For poise, pull your navel back to your spine, lift your head high and smile from your heart and strut. Don’t let anyone guess how nervous or anxious you may feel, just Strutt!

People… I agree with A.H. here. Everyone needs a boost sometime, and a smile costs you nothing, so let your heart speak.

Hands are for touching, feeling, loving, washing, scrubbing, drawing, sewing, making, playing, healing, massaging. I love hands and their power.

The tips about a man: I have 1 – 4 all in one man, Tom! Lucky me!
