Oprah and Innoxa: The True Spirit of Friendship
“The True Spirit of Friendship”
O, the Oprah Magazine and Innoxa are celebrating groups of women who have found hope and healing through sharing.
As winners of the January Circle of Friendship competition, the Innoxa “Restore” gift hampers were awarded to the “Water Ladies”, as the amaBele Belles were referred to in the magazine, for giving so of their time to support, uplift and enrich other’s lives.
When you smile whilst talking, you put a smile in your words too.
The above quote was on a bookmark attached to one of the hampers handed out to the Belles in March 2010.
The quotes below were printed on the side of the bag:
The most exhilarating things come slow and unnoticed
Happiness is only lasting if it is one you discover yourself
With one foot standing firm, the other is free to kick or dance
Learn to laugh like a five year-old and the sky will also seem much bigger
You are the best gift I got for myself
Have a light heart
Learn to laugh and things will sort itself out
Happiness comes to you when you stop asking for it by name
Be the calm after the storm, tranquil and smooth
You can’t listen to the music of your soul if you are making too much noise
I can’t blow the clouds away, but I will dance with you in the rain
Going through the highs and lows, we’ve learned to enjoy the calm
Sing with not a care in the world, be the star in your own show
The magical healing power of hugs is yet to be explained by scientists
There is nothing like a welcome home kiss to dissolve the headaches of the day
Never underestimate the refreshing power of the giggles
It is life’s mystery that rough sandpaper should produce smooth surfaces
In love we grow, sprout shoots and roots to stand strong
