True Beauty

I'm cleaning my bedroom/study after the busy Christmas season readying it for the new year and I found this on a torn and yellowing bit of paper:

A dear old lady was asked what she used to make her complexion so beautiful and her whole being so bright and attractive. She answered in short:
'I use for my lips, truth;
I use for my voice, kindness;
I use for my eyes, compassion;
I use for my hands, charity;
I use for my figure, uprightness;
I use for my heart, love;
I use for any who do not like me, Prayer.'

This is way I hope to age!

It sounds like your mother to me! I love your mother - if this is beautiful, then she's truly beautiful!
