Beauty treatments in the Hospice

I recently went to the beauty shop to have my pre holiday pedicure...nice result on my old (knarled) feet!
The young therapist was very chatty and she told me that on one of her days off she volunteered her services at the local hospice.
She said that she did treatments and make-overs on terminally ill ladies.
I asked her if those ladies felt better for this.
She told me one lady had said that she needed to know that she looked her very best. That gave her strength to face anything that lay ahead.
I thought that was wonderful.

What a lovely thing to do! I am sure your therapist's visits are very much appreciated by those ladies who would prefer to still look their best.
