Beauty of a Woman
"For active lips speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
....For poise, walk with the knowledge you will never walk alone.

People more than things have to be retored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

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.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where she resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty is reflected in her soul..."
---By Audrey Hepburn

Catherine Jackson's true beauty is reflected in her soul and she uses her hands, her time, and her energy to help others. Making a difference in the community and in the lives of others is all that matters to her. Catherine is available for speaking at events, fundraising, volunteering, parades, and master of ceremonies. All appearances are free of charge.
