A Gift for My Parents — Stones for Health
I have been concerned with my parents’ health. Recently, I talked to my mother on the phone and found out that she has been so stressed out from work lately. Then I remembered an article I read on foot massage and reflexology. I then thought of reminding her and my father to find time to take short walks. They are not so into exercising. So I thought of making the “walk” a bit different than usual. She loves gardens as most women do so as my father. So I suggested we build a neat little Zen garden somewhere around the house that would have rounded and smooth stones as pavement.
Each morning or maybe in the evening after work they can walk barefoot on the stones to get that daily dose of foot massage and a short walk. They can take a walk to and fro while tending to the flowers or they can play with my nephew and take a few running over-here-and-there, or they can simply take those paces while enjoying the company of each other under a canopy of stars. ♥.♥ I suggested they try walking on the stones after a hot day, the stones would be warm and it would feel good on their feet!
I am thinking of something that may look like the one below but not necessarily similar in landscape. We don’t have the luxury of space at home. The stones too should be rounded smooth so they won’t hurt their feet. The ones used below are rough and would more likely do harm than good. 🙂
Well, you might want to try this too for your parents. If you are working at another city, which makes you live away from them you can bring some new ornamental plants, or flowers or something to posh up your parents’ HEALTH GARDEN with each time you go home. 🙂
