as i was nursing ezra today, like always, i held his hand in mine. i gazed upon the freshness of his skin, his chubby little hands. i noticed the contrast to my own, worn and wrinkled in time hands. i pondered the amazing life our hands have. taking us through our lives. hand-y indeed. holding. caressing. feeding. washing. writing. creating. caring. driving. pushing. pulling. holding. playing. discovering. cleaning. sorting. living! multi- functioning. ever important. and yet, seldom recognized for their goodness. today, i am grateful for the life my hands have given to me. and what they will continue to provide. today, appreciate your hands. and recognize their efforts.
