Hello, my dear readers!
I do hope that you had a lovely Christmas holiday, despite how isolating this year has been. Daddy and I were fortunate to be able to lean into one another for support and find our joy, despite some recent heartache. But that is a story for another day.
Today, I am choosing to focus on the positive. I greatly enjoyed working in my new guided journal this morning (Soul Therapy, by J. Kademian). This morning’s prompt was one of gratitude and it was a wonderful change of pace to focus on what I am grateful for, rather than focusing on what I have lost.
This year, rather than surprise each other with Christmas presents (especially as stores were closed where we live), we enjoyed a fun morning of on-line shopping together a few weeks ago. As the items arrived, I put them under the tree and we opened them Christmas morning. One of our purchases included a hot stone massage kit, which came with the case that heats up the stones. We also purchased Elemis massage oil.
Now, when Daddy and I were first married, we took a couple’s massage class during our honeymoon adventure. These are skills we have retained over the years, and I must share that Daddy is capable of giving a very sensual massage. A few years ago, while on a cruise, I experienced a hot stone massage for the first time and was absolutely hooked! Now, we will spend some time together reviewing the tutorial videos and will each take turns giving the other a hot stone massage.
The stones are heating up as we speak!
Find your joy where you can, my friends. Sending my love to you.
PS…. and I’m hoping for a different type of “massage” later…
