My Mother's Hands

In honor of Mother's Day I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to my mother for all that she has done for me in my life.  This picture is not perfect in anyway, it was taken on my cell phone and it was just a quick snap, but I will always love it.  Sometimes it is not about a perfectly crafted photo sometimes it is about the moment and the memory.  

My Mother's Hands

These hands welcomed me into the family, wiped away my tears, gave me strength, showed me how to cook, how to pray and give love.

These hands loved animals, pulled weeds, cleaned floors and dishes, washed clothes and hauled water.  These hands did emergency C-sections, helped birth lambs,  soothed leg cramps and always had a welcoming hug.

These hands showed me respect, discipline and love.  Every wrinkle, spot and crookedness tells a story.

That is why I love my mother's hands.
