A Bit of Pampering....

One of the most wonderful experiences of going through cancer is all the love I encounter.  I think the deeper in pain one is, the greater the love shown to pull them out. People extend more love, but I feel that the more you are hurting the more sensitive you become to the love that is shown.  So on those lines....let me tell you about a few "strangers" who've extended their love to me...

Charlie and Courtney from John Roberts Spa and Salon 

These dear gals showed up to pamper anyone and everyone at Rainbow!  I had a lot of icky glue in my hair from the EEG; to compound that, I'm not allowed to take a proper shower, as it will get my dressing wet.  So....I had a lovely shampoo and blow dry by these dear girls.  They creatively worked around my IV stand, propping me up in the sink with pillows and an office chair!  They also gave me a lovely hand massage complete with salon nail treatments!  After they were through with me, they went on to bring some special joy to other patients.  Thank you so much for giving of your time and talents to make me feel special!!


  1. Dear Jen,
    What a blessing to see you feeling well enough to enjoy this pampering. The Lord brings you to mind continually and I am praying for you.
    With much love,
    Debbie Barth :-)
