how to thank my feet?

As I did the Camino last year I know how important my feet are. Going the Camino again this year I am searching for a little meditation/ massage/ prayer/ ... to say "thank you" to my feet. I can easily think of my very own "prayer" but I am interested in some sort of "rite" that is practised by lots of people. If you have any ideas where I could find some hints IŽd be very thankful for your answer.

My Camino ritual to thank my feet was to dunk them for a few minutes in every stream or irrigation ditch I encountered. I walked the CF in September/October, and my feet so appreciated the break, the flow of chilly water, and the comfort of drier socks when I dried my feet off and reshod them. Mini foot rubs helped, too, and the two professional foot rubs I got (one in Pamplona, one outside San Xulian) were precious gifts to my tired feet.

A very old thread, but still relevant. Like you, I found taking a break to soak my feet when I had opportunity was so refreshing and invigorating. My feet always said "thank you"!
