Bath-time … have you ever stopped to think about your bath as you take it? How it feels? The thoughts you have?
Okay … I know some of you are thinking ‘okay, where is this going?’ I will tell you this … it’s not going in the direction of … ‘sexy, provocative, erotic’. I could write it well … but, I normally don’t write that way. That isn’t at all what I’m writing about at this moment.
I am talking about a bath … a wonderful, refreshing bath! People who know me … know I love my baths. I love for my skin to smell wonderful.
I love the sensation of warm water flowing over my skin after I’ve lathered up with lots of body wash in the scent of my favorite soap … Caress. I love watching the soapy bubbles as they rinse off my skin.
I love taking my nail brush, gently brushing my finger nails, toe nails … rinsing the brush thoroughly.
I have white towels … I love snow-white towels. When it’s time to dry off … a pure white towel feels wonderful as I pat, dry my skin. It smells so clean from being washed in Tide, and Clorox. I love to hold it against my face to inhale the fragrance. Oh my ….
There’s no feeling in the world like a wonderful, refreshing bath. Think about your baths … how good they feel … how nice they smell as you bath. Your skin glows, feels pampered when you take time to dry it off.
When I dry my body off … I lean down to dry my toes. I really love to dry my toes off. That’s a wonderful feeling. That completes my bath.
I’m so thankful to be able to take a warm bath. Through time I’ve known people who didn’t have that luxury. I don’t take anything for granted.
Have you stopped to think before you enjoy the comforts in your life … to think of the many people who don’t have the means to enjoy anything? Maybe you don’t … I can’t help but, to. I’ve seen so much through time … so, I do think about them.
When you take your next shower … take a moment to feel, think about it. I know lots of times we have to hurry through a shower to get ready for work, to go somewhere. It’s hard to relax long enough to really feel, enjoy your shower when in a rush.
Do you know the most memorable shower I ever had in my entire life? It was on a isolated beach at a shower house. I was a young woman of 28 years old. I never thought about how dangerous for a young woman alone … to do what I did that night.

No one was around … the moonlight was shining down on me as I undressed to walk into one of the shower stalls. The breeze was blowing on my wet skin … it felt so heavenly.
The breeze and moonlight, the sound of waves washing ashore made my bath that night … pure heaven. I’ve always tried through time to re-create it. I never have … I would want to have such a ‘heavenly bath’ again. Oh my …

I ‘pure love’ taking a wonderful shower with my favorite fragrances. I love drying my skin with a fluffy, white towel. I would love again to take a ‘heavenly bath’ on the beach while listening to the waves as I shower under the moonlight.
