hot stone massage
For Christmas my beloved and daughter gave me a gift certificate for a hot stone massage. I finally was able to make an appointment. And I was not disappointed. The moment that made me truly smile was when she slipped hot stone pebbles between my toes. That was definitely the most delicious moment of my day! It literally made me smile.
There is something necessary about human contact...specifically touch. Studies have been written about it. It is essential to life. Today was a beautiful reminder of that fact.
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~ Leo F. Buscaglia
