Family Circus

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. - Doug Horton



I had no Thursday Thirteen prepared for today, and I decided to share a message that DH's Mom sent to me recently. Every woman that I've come into contact with is beautiful, so what better way to tag all of them? I blogged it! Thank you, Mom.

It's BEAUTIFUL WOMEN MONTH. TAG... YOU'RE IT! Did you know that it's Beautiful Women Month? Well, it is and that means you!!! I'm supposed to send this to FIVE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN (or more) and you are one of them!!! Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later.

1. For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
2. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
3. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
4. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
5. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

If you share this with other women, something good will happen . . . you will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that you care about her. Have a good day!
