Here are some wonderful posts from around the internet — in some way related to using and appreciating our hands:
Angelina at Dustpan Alley says:
But I have the hands I was born with. I like them. I like what they do. I like what they accomplish. I like how they find joy sometimes before my eyes do. I like how they care for me when I’m sick and how they don’t mind being covered with my baby’s spit and shit. I like how they can sometimes fashion beautiful food for my husband and also care for his sickbed by changing all the sheets and opening the casements wide to let in the fresh air. I like how they can use thread to bind fibers together. I like how they can tackle repetitive actions like birds flying south through the night.
