I love hands. I never realized that I loved them until I had my babies.
I have always looked at my children with wonder and awe at the fact that they are little people. Watching Marco grow this first year has been the most amazing experience of my life, and now I have the privilage of doing the same with Jonas. They really do grow fast!
I love to think about my children's hands and all that they will accomplish. Hands that will learn to feed. Hands that will learn to clap. Hands that will learn to play. Hands that will write countless papers, type on the computer and hopefully play an instrument. Hands that will hold a stering wheel. Hands that will hold other hands. Hands that will one day wear a ring. Hands that will hold their own babies. And hands that will pray.
Most of all, I look at that tiny hand in mine, only 2 weeks old and less than 4 pounds and think, "Wow, one day that hand will be bigger than mine. And one day, that hand will do better than I do".
