Three men and a pregnant lady
Today is one of those days when I really look forward to going to work. One of the neighbors, a marine who has been in Afghanistan for the past eight months (his third tour) has returned home all in one piece (thank God!) and is coming in for some bodywork. He is a really nice person, lovely actually. He's not one of those soldiers who sits at a desk; he always "sees action." I can't imagine how anyone musters the courage to do that. It will be, as it always is, an honor and a pleasure to work with him.
Another client on today's schedule is a pregnant woman whose fertility doctor told her (before she got pregnant) that her eggs were "inferior." Why would anyone say such a thing? It's rude, hurtful and demeaning - and - he was WRONG!
And I'll see a friend/client who exchanges gift certificates from his fabulous housewares store for massage, plus a neighbor who doesn't care what kind of music I play while I work on him, so we always crank up the ipod and rock out during his sessions.
It's a good day to work for so many reasons. The snow continues to melt in spite of today's howling wind and chilly temperatures. While the blustery day unfolds, my clients and I will be warm and snug, inhaling the sweet smell of essential oils, listening to music, breathing, oh yeah. Life is good and I am grateful. Happy Friday, y'all!
