When I was first asked to do massages in several disabled group homes several years back, I wondered to myself….could I do it? could I handle it? would it bother me? Now I know that a day for me at the disability group homes brings so much fulfillment that I can’t hardly put it into words. The special people there have taught me so much. I love them very much. Now I could not imagine NOT giving massages to these very special people in my life. They are special people whose lives are so much different than the rest of us out here in the world. A life that I could not imagine myself but I end up with having so much gratitude seeing how much I can do independently and they cannot. Communication with them is not always verbal but it still takes place between us. I love to give them the power of touch. I hope it brings grace and joy to their life with dignity. The staff that takes care of them exudes professionalism along with caring for them like they were their family and I am also in gratitude to them for accepting me into their graces and helping me when I am at a loss. The experience of giving massage to special people who are disabled every week has been given to me as a very special gift and I am truly grateful.
