Saturday afternoon and my next little patient arrived.
Five years old with long blonde hair. She’s just the most beautiful little girl and always so happy to see me.
Now it’s actually been about two years since she last came for a visit with her grandma and aunty. Not for a treatment, just for a visit. So when her grandmother asked if I would give her a treatment I didn’t hesitate, because I knew the little one would be very happy to climb up onto my healing bed as she had done, as she played, two years earlier.
She loves my healing room, it’s full of butterflies, angels and fairies. A little girls delight!
And this big girls.
So why did her grandmother feel the need for her to have a treatment?
A few weeks ago her great grandfather died, the whole family were very upset at loosing him so quickly. He had been a father, a grandfather, and great grandfather, full of jokes and love and his loss had affected our little one quite badly.
She hasn't wanted to leave her mothers side since the day of his funeral. She hasn’t wanted to go to school and she doesn’t like being left when anyone goes out. Our little one defiantly needed some help.
She was very pleased to see me. I got a lovely hug as soon as she came through our front door.
And I was right, she climbed up onto my healing bed with out even being asked and lay herself down.
I was able to give her almost a full treatment, well over hour an hour, and for a little one that was a long time. She just lay quietly with a great big smile on her face. Enjoying every minute of her treatment. This is one very ‘aware’ little girl. Or should I say ‘Old Soul.’
When her grandma put her into the car to go home, she asked her how she was feeling?
Apparently she put both her thumbs up into the air and said, “grandma I feel so happy”.
Now what more you could possibly want a five year old to say?
I do love what I do.
Grandma is going to bring her back to see me for a couple more treatments as she feels it will do her the world of good. And of course that’s fine by me.
I’ll keep you all posted.
