From time to time it's nice to revisit some of our favorite quotes, poems or stories. I like to use them as affirmations - they bring me joy and strength. The following is a poem, of sorts, written by Sam Levenson. It's entitled, 'Time Tested Beauty'. It's a favorite and I thought I'd share it with you on this beautiful Friday morning.

Time Tested Beauty

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 you'll never walk
alone ...
People, even more than things, have to be restored,
renewed, revived, reclaimed
and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.
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.
