I am thankful for my hands
Hands that I rely upon to speak when words escapes me
Hands I often use as an extension of my expressions
My skills – written, organizational, artistic
They are a blessing
They assist instinctively
In loyalty they help me continuously, effortlessly
To prepare meals
To manage my self-care
To care for others
To express love, sympathy and empathy
To communicate alternatively ensuring I am understood
They have never failed me
Even when injured they continue to support and sustain me
They have allowed me to hold, care and embrace my children
Squeeze my God sons and tickle them till they are breathless
Style my hair with attitude to express my mood.
They are a gift
A gift from God for whom I clasp them together in prayer and say thank you
I am grateful for my hands
My hands are a joy.
