Ageless Beauty walking gently upon the Narrow Path
She runs, she glides, she rests, she makes the journey her home
Eyes roam in search of hidden truths to hold, to grasp and adorn
In never-ending pursuit of the knowledge that evades the apathetic
A solid foundation rooted in love, she unites her family
Her green touch hails life in the dead garden, now fresh and new
With tasks at hand to nurture, to provide, to advise
She shifts in form to embody the need of the moment
Watch on, watch long, wholehearted devotion you will observe
She has an audience in me, I listen and absorb
May I sit beside you, Seasoned Wisdom, on the narrow path?
What will you share? What must I know? What knowledge do I lack?
Speak the words that breathe life in the graveyards of my being
Then, permit the Undeserving to leave you with a wish
Hold no more the woes from seasons Time has now retired
Ageless Beauty, age in grace, grow in love, lie down in peace.
From Tredessa Christine Rhoades, (a very wonderful daughter) in watercolor and ink, on the occasion of my 5oth birthday. At this point in life, you enjoy being described as ageless and timeless. *smile…

What a wonderful gift! Tre pays attention to the details. She really knows her mom well!
She rocks. You rock. She nailed it. There were tears.
Wow! Are those the very words of my beautiful Grandaughter.? Whether yes or no…that is a “rare treasure” hand written in honor or her Mother–“my Beautiful Daughter. Awesome Job Tredessa.! A real keeper.! Grandma’s proud of you.!
Yes, mama. Tredessa wrote those for me. I am hardly worthy of such thoughts, but it makes me want to live up to it.
