A Bubble Bath

“I feel sexy when I get out of the tub – your skin is fresh and you’ve put up your hair without looking.” ~Shania Twain

Living with the daily challenges of chronic illness and time consumption with the general busyness of life leave little time for self-indulgence, let alone pampering my femininity. Too tired or lack of interest are convenient excuses. But once in awhile…

Alone, the peace and quiet of an evening seduced me into celebrating being a woman. Dimming the bathroom lights, the scent of vanilla from lighted candles softly illuminated the bathtub as I ran a hot cranberry bubble bath. Instrumental mood music played in the background as I lowered myself into the steamy warmth.

Occasionally sipping on a cool drink, I closed my eyes and just relaxed my head against a rolled up towel. I would trickle hot bubbly water from the washcloth along my shoulders, luxuriating in the silky heat.

Drying off from my bath, I lathered my damp skin with a floral cream from Bath & Body Works. I felt pampered, sexy, and beautiful.
