You Washed my Feet

“So, he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’s feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.” John 13:4-5

I don’t believe there is a more comforting and intimate gesture of friendship then washing someone’s feet. My dear friend Karen (pictured on the left) does this daily to bless and help people. She is a longtime friend from church and is also a cancer survivor herself. So, when she heard of my situation, she wrapped her arms tightly around me and told me that she had me covered! She spoke with the owner of the spa (also a believer) where she works as a nail technician and arranged for me to come in for whatever treatments I would need.

Yesterday she set up an appointment for me and gently washed and massaged my feet and painted my toenails. And to add blessing to blessing, my good friend Susan Klein (pictured on the right), who lives nearby, joined us with a tray of snacks and her uplifting words of encouragement!! God has truly blessed me with an army of friends and supporters as I walk through this.

She also arranged with a hair dresser in the salon (also a believer! :)) to be my “hair person” over the next month. I have been advised to take it off slowly, so I started that process. This sweet gal, did a great job and I am loving my new short do (although my neck is cold all the time – that is something new for me! :)). In two weeks I will return and have it cut shorter and then we will transition to phase 3 – no hair! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, from head to toe, I am covered and feeling ready and loved as I head into Thursday!

  1. I like the new do! You have an awesome support group. A member of our church had BMT as well as chemo/radiation. After it was all over his formerly straight hair came back curly!! So you never know … maybe this is the first of many new do’s! Hugs.

  3. You are beautiful. With or without hair. You’ll be just fine. I can see God is there to help you and heal. Just a short time and this bump in the road will last. I have been there and I’m better than ever. I’ll send you a healing pray. Dennis’s mom. Alice ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒนโคโค
