To My Beautiful Friends & Another Recipe

To all my BEAUTIFUL Bloggin' girlfriends

Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn (a woman whom I admired and loved in the movies) wrote when asked to share her 'beauty tips.' It was read at her funeral years later. The words a very inspiring and hold a ton of truth.

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.

Hi Donna:
I love that poem, and Audrey Hepburn too. Did you ever see the movie where she played a blind lady? I think it was Wait until Dark. Great actress.
Your blog page is getting all decked out so cute.

I've always been a big Audrey Hepburn fan and I remember this poem being read at her funeral...no truer words have ever been spoken! She was such a classy lady through and through.

That fruit salad looks delicious! I make one similar but use vanilla pudding and cool whip instead of cottage cheese because I don't like that stuff! lol

Have a wonderful weekend my friend. xoxo

Hi Donna! Thanks for stopping in to read my story from Gollum's exercise. You know when I saw your recipe said the Mandarin Oranges I immediately thought of my father when he was living here with me I would always give him Mandarin oranges and cottage cheese for his lunch desert. This sounds so good and easy. You can bet I will try this one. Deb
