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, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. 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."
— Audrey Hepburn
can i just step on my soap box for a minute?
our girls are growing up too fast. they are exposed to much more at an earlier age. i was talking with a friend the other day who shared that she saw her five year old daughter looking in the mirror doing the "hiney glance." you know what i'm talking about...the one where you look in the mirror and then turn sideways and give an over-the-shoulder glance at your rear to make sure it looks okay. yeh...we all do it.
audrey hepburn speaks volumes. i hope to direct my kiddos to focus on the beauty that can be found in everyone and everything. i hope to help them focus on helping others instead of wanting everything they see for themselves. i hope they will know that beauty comes from within. i hope for a positive self-image that does not stem from make-up and fancy clothes and hair that is just right.
but in order for her to learn these things...she must see it in me.
whatcha think mama's?
