Good afternoon my dear friends.
I’ve just had Maria round, for my weekly fix of reflexology.
Now a month or so ago she lost her beloved mum. Her mum was 90 and died peacefully. This was the same time that we lost our 16 year old pet Lucy.
Please don’t anyone be offended, but I was hurting badly over my loss, but I know Maria was utterly devastated by the loss of her mum. We’ve talked more in depth about our feelings today. She says her grief is getting worse and doesn’t know why. She met our new Sophie and saw how much she has helped us.
I said it was easy for me to get another dog, but she can never get another mum and I know the grief of losing mum and dad.
We always play soft and gentle music when she works on my feet. The CD is called Serenity. Track 6 is just so beautiful. I told Maria what it made me think of and shared this with her.
I imagine me, with legs that work, our Lucy with agile, springy legs, Maria and her mum, fit young and with the most beautiful smile, all skipping through a meadow. Its grass is long and soft. It tickles our bare feet as we head for a soothing, glistening brook. When we reach the water, we all dip our toes in and giggle with delight as the cool fresh water runs between them. Maria’s mums quietly says, ‘Ah now, that’s lovely!’
Now friends, if this can help any of you, even in the tiniest way, be soothed and refreshed.
I hope Maria felt better.
Much love Pollxx
