To all my friends and readers and critics and family: If you're a woman, this is for you. Written by Audrey Hepburn and read at her funeral. It says a lot and is worth reading and thinking about! Enjoy.
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.
And your hint for this weekend?
Take a walk
Kick up the leaves
Pick up a leaf
Pick up a whole bunch of them
Lie in the leaves
Thank God for life.
Quote? I love so many, it's hard to choose, but here goes with another good one:
Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile. -- William Cullen Bryant
