Moms Are Just a Massage Away From Daughterly Love

By rebecca trujillo | directora

Special Invitation to Grandmother
Special Invitation to Grandmother

"When one of us suffers, we all suffer," said a mother inviting a grandmother to the Magic Shoes Affirmation Group. "How could we just meet here knowing that she was at home alone suffering."  This grandmother just lost two of her sons to covid.

Part of this bi-weekly affirmation group was giving each other a massage. So this grandmother received massages from other moms and daughters too. She was grateful to be included in the affirmations. "The thing is to help each other communicate. We all need that little touch to communicate our concern for one and other. I loved the massage as well as giving one to my daughter."
The mothers and daughters enjoyed giving a massage and then receiving one in return. For some of the mothers, it was hard because they have never had a massage before, but they soon learned how a simple massage can raise the spirits.
The daughters and mothers continue to work together to affirm each other in communication. Giving the massages was a way for them to learn to affirm one another; it worked as an icebreaker to more conversation and better relations between mother and daughter. "You got to believe it took a lot for my daughter to give me a massage." These were simple massages; they were new experiences, and everyone learned new ways of being able to touch each other.
The mothers are very proud of themselves and their daughters as they work to understand each other. At each session, the pair put on different shoes or socks to try to create a bond that makes it all worth the effort by trying on a different perspective. We want to thank all of you for your continued support through the pandemic shut down. It slowed us down, but it didn't shut us out of the lives of our daughters.
