A Humble Gift

 

He is 81 and his mind is sharp, but his body is not as limber as it once was.

His daughter has a very busy life as a successful business woman as well as a wife, mother and grandmother.  She is also very active in her church and as a volunteer.

For Father’s Day, she gave him a foot bath, and a promise.

Now every few weeks, she goes to his house and has him soak his feet in his warm, soothing new foot bath and then she gives him a pedicure.

In the bible, washing someone’s feet is considered an act of love and respect.  How fitting.

    Beth — You are so right. But, she is the first daughter I have ever known who came up with this way of showing her love and appreciation for all he did! She’s my niece and a very special person.

    New Diva — Lovely is a perfect description.

    Chrissy — Yes, it is an act of admiration, isn’t it.
