100 word challenge – this week’s prompt is …and then I smiled…


The day started full of frustration and stress.
My view of the world was a little out of kilter.
With a last minute appointment, I entered the room, taking in the dim lighting and candles.
I laid face down and tried to focus my mind on the calming music.
I noticed the aroma as the cool oil trickled onto my back.
Warm hands spread the liquid over my spine, neck and shoulders.
Strong fingers and knuckles kneaded my bunched muscles.
Physical tensions gradually eased, muscles relaxed.
I put our house sale situation back into perspective …. and then I smiled.
