Massage Therapy

It seems that no matter where we go, someone comes up to my Dad and starts to work on his neck, shoulders, arms, etc. They know about his sore shoulders and pinched, broken collar bone, and they delight in trying to ease his pain and discomfort. They love my Dad dearly, and this is something they can do for him. He loves them, and this is something he can do for them.

Even when we returned from Trivandrum and Coimbatore to Bangalore, Dad's good friend, Mr. Subbaiah, had arranged for us to have an intense foot massage followed by a back massage.

We visited a former student's home and she had pictures from Dad's trip up north in October. I've added a few of those too ...

Dad often quotes the verse, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." And just as he believes it, lives it through his own life and receives great blessing by giving to others, he in turn allows other people the opportunity to be blessed by giving as well.
