One Amazing Saturday!

Okay so today has been one of the most best days ever! It all started about a week ago when I got an email from one of the yahoo groups I belong to about a holistic health fair here in Rockford.

Now, this is MY crowd; My 'scene' if you will so right when I read the description, I wanted to go more then anything.

Unfortunately, my mum had to take my sister everywhere today, my only friend was going out of town with her mum, and my dad was hunting. I pretty much lost hope until my tutor said she could do it because some kids of hers cancelled. And wouldn't ya know it, but my dad comes home early to take me =]

So I made it! But of course, that isn't the end of the obstacles. We pulled up to the place and it has stairs. Nothing was going to stop us though, so dad pulled out the wheelchair and lifted me all the way up those stairs into the house!

It was so wonderful! Right when I arrived, I felt a calm peace and knew this was a place that I wanted to spend my time in; To devote my time to.

The people where so nice and accommodating. I was able to get a 15 minute massage, consult with natural healers, view the wonderful artwork that was on display by the members there, walk(or more accurately wheel) part of the labyrinth on their property, talk with the founders of the place, and get a reflexology massage.

The thing about the last one is we were just about to leave when the lady came up and started talking to us about reflexology and what it deals with. Then she offered to give me one and I was thinking why not? 15 minutes won't hurt and I really do love the reflexology practice. But this lady gave me the royal treatment! One whole hour of massaging and working on my feet; She even brought in a second person to work on my other foot so I had two people working on me at once. It was truly amazing.

The best part of all of this is it was suggested donation so you could give whatever you wanted. Of course I gave very nice tips because it was well worth it and they all deserved it.

I love this place so much. It only costs $50.00 a year to become a member and for all that you get, it's well worth it. I plan on taking classes and volunteering and everything I can do to be apart of that wonderful community of woman.

Wow that is really cool! Glad you found somewhere that you felt you belonged and had good energy. I have been wanting to try this certain type of pilates (I can't remember the name now) where they evaluate your body and way your particular body and limbs move and then designed a pilates routine to fit your needs perfectly. Anyone can do it and it's supposed to be great for the body. Your story reminded me of that.

I also love the part where you mentioned your Dad carrying you up the stairs. That was so touching. I love hearing things like that!
