Gorgeous flowers filled the city. I had found my favorite bahn mi and bowl of beef pho and could call District 2 my home. Each day was such a gift to be able to spend a few hours with the children. Week one was over and a few of our volunteers left. It was amazing to watch each of us interact with the kids, and how our unique approaches comforted them. I usually sang to the children so they could feel my essence as I held them. We spent time relieving contracted positions by stretching and used other forms of rocking, jostling, and tapotement to stimulate their bodily systems. I felt lucky to be massaging a young person who may never otherwise know the benefits of massage therapy. After all, Touch is what we need to survive. I am so thankful for Buds to Blossoms for impacting the lives of these children as well as teaching the staff how to massage and provide the benefits of nurturing touch. It is truly a miracle that places and organizations like this exist. Repeatedly in my travels did I find that the ones with the least had the most to give.
