Realizing Treasures

Today, realizing the treasures life gives unexpectedly.

Seeing the enviable joy in women, helped to a stage in
life which can be multiplied a hundredfold.

Rolf's Salon has encouraged many displaced homemakers
to feel good inside by showing a warmth and kindness
through their eyes.

Gifts were given plentifully, but the most treasured
of all was meeting Rolf eye to eye and seeing the
acceptance in his soul of joy for me.

With just one look, moving to the next stage in life,
feeling lifted towards a higher good.

Fulfillment does not always come gift wrapped, but it
is always shared.

Thank you Rolf for the most wonderful gift received,
non-judgmental acceptance given without greed, to a
little homemaker, aspiring to be a poet.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
