Thankful Thursday: A Loving Massage

               This is my first time joining a weekly meme and frankly I am really having doubts about posting because when I looked at the blog posts that joined the Thankful Thursday meme, they were all about deep and profound things and mine is kind of..different, I guess? But I decided to gather up some courage and forged on because I am really thankful about this and I wanted to share that feeling to the rest of the world. (Or at the very least, to those who take the time to read my blog J Thank you for all your visits!) Ok, here goes.




               I am very thankful for massages. I know, weird right? But I’m not talking about just any kind of massage. I’m talking about a loving massage--the kind given by someone who really wanted to take care of me.
               Today was the start for ‘that’ time of the month and it is usually a very painful and stressful experience. I would be curled up into this pathetic little ball of misery but today was quite different. It was still quite painful yes, and I was still miserable BUT a loving massage did wonders for me.
               Nowadays, massage and spa places offer affordable rates for relaxing massages and I know that they can really remove all those body aches and pains. But for me, nothing beats a home massage given by someone I love and someone who loves me and cares for me. Commercial massages soothes body aches and pains but a loving massage also soothes heart aches and pains. There is nothing more soothing and relaxing in the world than the feeling of knowing that someone cares for me and my well being and is taking the time to take care of me. No commercial massage can beat that.

  1. I like your thankful post. I don't write big deep and meaningful posts. I just make my list. Because sometimes I need reminding that there are so many things to be thankful for.
    And I know what you mean about some of the other posts, they used to intimidate me too.

  2. It was a great post! We all express ourselves differently. But you should never underestimate the power, or profoundness ;), of your own words. I'm glad you had the courage to keep writing and I agree, there are no better massages than one given by a loved one! <3
