On the eve of my departure from Melbourne, I came home from my final shopping to find “The Audrey Hepburn Collection” Boxset in my bedroom.
Yippee! It’s my very first Christmas present for 2006.
The boxset contains 5 DVDs, a compact mirror & 5 collectable Audrey Hepburn postcards.
The 5 DVD movies are: “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Paris when it Sizzles”, “Funny Face”, “Sabrina” and my favourite “Roman Holiday”.
The elegant Audrey Hepburn has always been one of my favourite actress ever since I was still a student in Melbourne where I used to watch the re-runs of her movies on television.
Audrey Hepburn read the following poem by Sam Levenson to her sons, Sean & Luca on Christmas Eve 1992. Since it is Christmas, I thought that it is most appropriate for me to share this beautiful poem with all of you.
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.
