A Treat Well Deserved for Someone Deserving

Everyone has had the desire or need to treat themselves every once in a while. Some even more than others. But how many of us get to enjoy a treat that is equal to the work and pain that we truly endure? It appears that Lucy Goh is now one of those people.

Lucy's "Tiger Year" began with the four deaths of her mother in law, her aunt, her mother, and her best friend who also was a model for Salaam Wanita's eco-basket exhibitions. This not to mention that Lucy suffers from Lupus, a debilitating and crippling disease for any single mother. Lucy has also had a near death experience with her disease that was so detrimental that she had lost memories of her family. After this experience she was basically retaught to live her life and identify herself.

Although this simple and short explanation does very little justice to explain Lucy's trials and successes, I am happy to see Lucy go through something as luxurious as a spa treatment. The spa to me is one of the ultimate symbols of luxury and pampering. It is a place that at once rejuvenates, refreshes, and renews the self both spiritually and mentally. It is also a great treat that few can afford regularly. Lucy's spa treatment is certainly a great thing to witness not only because I am personally jealous, but also because it is nice to see luxury go to a person who is not merely financially capable of purchasing such a treat, but instead to someone who has endured a multitude of life's tribulations. So here is to seeing the deserving truly receiving a deserved treat. See Part 2 and Part 3 of her treatment here.
