Fabulous Gift


Monday, November 11, 2013

What a treat! What a great gift!! What a wonderful surprise!!!

Yesterday my daughter came and picked up the two granddaughters as usual on Sunday evening around 6:30pm after she got off her second job as a massage therapist. We'd had a pretty good day, even with my hubby out of town and no car. There was outside activity, stories, puzzles, favorite toys, finger painting (including washing two shirts), good food (fresh apples and bananas and carrots and cheese and peanut butter and whole grain bread) and phone calls to out of town loved ones. I was feeling energetic and pretty well recovered from the half marathon run on Saturday, but I knew I had a few tight muscles still.

Around 8pm the door bell rang and there was my daughter with her massage table. It had been a year since I'd experienced her magic fingers. Oh, wow! What a great feeling. She worked on me for well over an hour. Incredibly relaxing. I thanked her, of course, but she said to be sure to thank her husband. He put the kids to bed so she'd have the time to do it.

I don't ever remember a better gift. And I'm feeling quite good this morning.

    How special-I know that this is a gift of love and that it was made even more special since it was a surprise. Nothing better than a good massage.
