HANDS DOWN

One of the most important parts of our body is our hands. Stop and think of all the different things we do with our hands.

A mother’s hand can stir up sugar cookies, make pies, wash dishes, dust, mend clothing, and peel potatoes. Her hands can rock a cradle, burp a colicky baby and soothe the brow of a sick child.

A dad’s hands can plant fields, harvest, work with tools, drive a truck, work on cars, mow the lawn, start a fire and build a house.

We use our hands everyday and it is almost impossible to imagine our life without them. Our hands have been used as a way of protecting ourselves since time began. Hands can actually be considered a weapon when clenched into fists. Open hands can be used to slap someone.
