For attractive lips, speak words of kindness…
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
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.
Poem by Audrey Hepburn
I found such truth in this poem and it couldn't have come to me at a better time. It's funny how people you love can make you feel so worthless. Doing damage control and cleaning up the mess can get very old. How many times can you glue the same pieces together before it starts to look pretty silly and deformed looking. AFter awhile you stand back and look at it and it doesn't even look normal anymore. And you wonder to yourself, what the heck am I doing wasting my time to fix this broken mess over and over again. Yup..this is a waste of time and energy.
But reading this poem made me realize something..change is a good thing even though it maybe painful..no one should feel worthless or thrown away. Instead of feeling sad and broken, better to help urself and make things better and help others while helping urself. The power is always found in ur 2 hands [within yourself and by your actions]
Be Blessed and keep me in prayer..I need one today. [sigh] I I feel broken as if my heart is bleeding within…God give me strength to find my way and do whats best for not only me, but for everyone. Well, at least I know I am alive…I'm bleeding inside. lol
