These Are The Hands

  • These are the hands that work hard every day.
  • These are the hands that pick up Katarina and spin her around until she giggles.
  • These are the hands that help me do laundry. 
  • These are the hands that draw silly pictures and sign sweet cards for no reason at all.
  • These are the hands that get I don't have to.
  • These are the hands that can turn into puppets with no warning.
  • These are the hands that make music that is beautiful.
  • These are the hands that I love....they are my husband's.


  1. We take our hands for granted and the do so much for us! Those hands also type this blog. Mine are eating cherries.

  2. my hands are telling me they need a manicure :(

  5. That is beautiful! I especially love how they are the hands that can turn into puppets with no warning. To see dad's with their kids is such a precious thing.
