I've been stressed the past few weeks with all the hustle and bustle of life. Being a stay-at-home wife is not an easy job. I do most of the chores and it's so tiresome and sometimes boring. My fingers had been tingling and in pain and also my back maybe because of gout or arthritis. Sometimes I wish that I'm still working like I used to but if I think of getting up early and work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, uh, uh, I better not. God blessed me and gave me a husband who can support me and I don't have to work for a living. Our work now is for the Lord and take care of the ministry that He entrusted to us. God is really good!
I needed a treat for myself. What better way than to pamper myself and show myself some appreciation for all the works I've done. So I text my old time friend and asked her to do a home service for me. She came after lunch yesterday and gave me a hair spa. It's my first time to have this done in my hair. While waiting on my hair to be done, I asked her to give me a manicure. It's been a while since the last time I had my nails manicured by an expert manicurist. Most of the time I do it myself to save some money. I can tell the difference of her work and mine. My nails look a lot better. After she's done with my the hair spa, my hair looks shinier and smoother.
Next, she gave me a whole body massage right in the comfort of our bedroom. She gave me a Swedish massage and it lasted for an hour. She learned how to massage from a German when she was working in Qatar. My stress was relieved and I felt so calm and relaxed. The pain in my back was relieved. I paid her Php100 for the hair spa, Php50 for my manicure and Php200 for the whole body massage, a total of Php350. Not bad for a home service huh! I don't have to spend a whole lot to pamper myself. I'll do it again next time. I deserve time to rest, relax and rejuvenate my body, mind and soul so I can work better for the glory of God.
