Wednesday Walk ~ Loving Up My Dad :)

Today, instead of walking with my dog Chants, I walk with my brother Barry. I am currently in Florida with my family, offering support to my dad as he recovers from heart surgery. Though it has been challenging & a bit scary to see my dad so vulnerable, I am so grateful that I can be here with him & help ease some of his discomfort. It has been an honor to share with him some of the tools that I use to soothe myself, such as relaxing music, lavender essential oils & a foot massage. Please enjoy this week’s video blog as I share about the joy of offering to others what we ourselves find nurturing.

What are some of the ways you nurture yourself and how can you use these tools to help nurture others? Please a comment so we can all learn!

love & gratitude,

    Sending love and healing light to you and your family! How lucky your dad is to have you. The essential oil aromatherapy & foot massage with lavender is wonderful; i used it on my mom when she was in ICU, along with relaxing music and Reiki. Blessings to you all!
