Today is Labour Day in New Zealand and we are all on holiday. I thought I would take the opportunity to share a poem I think has some points that really make sense when you get to have a day off.
The following poem by Sam Levenson was reportedly Audrey Hepburn’s favourite. Ms Hepburn is one of the classiest and beautiful woman ever to grace the screen and from what I know of her I can see why she might have chosen this as a favourite.
Time Tested Beauty Tips.
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 fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you’ll never walk alone.
We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed.
Never throw anybody out.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Your ‘good-ole-days’ are ahead of you.
May you have many of them.
I love the line, “Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm”.
