The Joys of a Warm Bath

You can change the world with a hot bath, if you sink into it from a place of knowing you are worth profound care, even if you are rattled. Who knew?

—Anne Lamott

Duff here. Sundays are the Best! I get a nice Warm Bath, which is quite a Production. First Mom takes Me outside for a little sashay, just in case it’s Needed. She then assembles My Bathing essentials. Cotton balls for ear Plugs. Towels, both for drying off and Settling In after. Heavenly scented Shampoo, for I want to smell good for My Clients. Living unstuck.

Next? She gently places Me in the Bathtub. While the Water warms up, My Earplugs are installed with Care. The Shower Wand does its magic as the first Pamper begins. (Warm Water on My back feels Grand. Don’t you find that To Be So too?) Mom follows by putting Shampoo into Her Hand to warm it. Then soaps Me up all over, finally rinsing Me off. Any remaining water is dispatched with the First Towel. Next, She wraps me in a Big Fluffy Contraption. And I fall asleep as She cuddles Me. I’m worth it, You know. Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You revel in a Bath or a Shower? Or just hop In and Out? I say: Indulge yourself. Set aside some Time. Get some lovely Scented Soap. Put the Phone away. Enjoy. You won’t regret it. I guarantee. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#the-joys-of-a-warm-bath
