Time tested beauty tips.

I first read this poem written by Sam Levenson in 1996 and have re-read it several times since then.  I thought I would share it.

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.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, 
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. 
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, 
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. 
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a wom
an with passing years only grows!
Sam Levenson
