Beautiful Flowers

A special thank you to 33 women who attended the Happiness class! I just wanted to share a poem inspired by lessons 3 and 4 and all the questions and discussions we had!

What is my mission on this earth one can ask,
To create a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Hashem is my task.

Every physical object and opportunity has a Divine Spark within,
It can be compared to a flower bud with its great potential hidden.

When a woman lights a candle for Shabbat her home is bright,
She turns a bud into a flower, a beautiful spiritual sight.

Although this beautiful flower I can't physically see,
To true happiness it also holds the key!

Happiness is a result of wholeness the Torah does say,
Two parts becoming one is the only way.

My body may want to go to the beach and have fun,
But to light Shabbat candles my Soul wants to run.

When my body and soul unite to do a Mitzvah true joy I feel,
I'm fulfilling my mission too, a beautiful flower, another bud does reveal.

May our bouquets become more beautiful each day,
And may we merit the coming of Moshiach right away!

For the Rosh Chodesh Society I'm as grateful as can be,
These classes have revealed the bud within me.
