The little things… day 13


 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.   ~Audrey Hepburn


I’m grateful for…
The use of my hands.  With it, I can hold my husband’s hand when we go for walks… paint my daughter’s toe nails, while she paints mine… make a feast, toast to life and hold a wine glass… unwrap chocolate… caress a baby’s soft cheek… comfort a friend… close a business deal… take pictures… draw… paint… create… give… I can keep going!

I’m letting go of…
Taking my hands for granted and take care of it better.

It’s amazing how much value you find something to be when you think about what it would be like without it.

  4. Such a thoughtful post. We probably all remember some special person–mother grandparent etc. who wiped away our tears and made the world brighter. Those hands were precious.
