Channeling AUDREY

"It's that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so 'don't fuss, dear; get on with it.' "

-- Audrey Hepburn (born 4 May 1929 in Brussels, Belgium; died 20 January 1992 in Tolochenaz, Switzerland)

Isn't that a wonderful sentiment on doing unto others, volunteerism, giving back to your community? Not only was Audrey Hepburn a beauty, a talented actress, and a humanitarian - she was also so darn quotable.

Have a great day, everyone!
-- Davielle (a big Audrey fan, wondering why I don't look this darling when I'm sweeping a floor)

another gem of an e-mail comment I received from VICKIE:

RE: Audrey
- she was a gem; however, just the opposite is true. If you first do not take excellent care of YOU, you have nothing left for others. Therefore you must/should come first. My sweet sister (bless and rest her soul) never did quite learn this and ended up giving so much to others first, her immune system could not keep care of her.
So dear one, pray, meditate, take private time away for JUST YOU - and try to do so daily.
