You've only got two hands

Today I looked at my hands!
Every day...they work so hard and do they ever get a thank you?
I'm always just trying to figure out a way to make them work harder. Why do we do this to ourselves? Am I the only one...I really don't think so.
I've noticed that since I'm not in the "business world" anymore, I've never worked harder. I'm so thankful that I get to raise my children myself, but WHEW, it's a lot of work. Of course, that is not all they do. The list could go on and on, but I just wanted to thank my little fingers today. I wanted to forever remember them and be thankful that I have all ten.
I also wanted to remind myself...YOU'VE ONLY GOT TWO!

My other job.....
Me-Lets go this way.
X-I really want to go to the play ground.
Me-I thought you wanted to stop by the library?
X-I do.
Me-Okay, lets go this way.
X-Can I go to the play ground?
X-Play ground?
Me-Okay, but we won't have enough time for the library.
X-I want to go to the library!
Me-Okay, lets go this way.
X-Can I PLEASE go to the play ground?
Me-(in my head)What is happening?


  1. Carol,
    Thank you so much for your visit to my art and the hand of mine and the one of my daughters!

    Hands just say it all don't they? I think yours are so beautiful! and the peaceful work behind them, steady, calm, creative, and busy!

    Will love to see the creative works that the kids come up with :)
    Great handy work ahead :)

  2. I am aware of hands too..they are such a blessing. This reminds me of a little song;

    I have two little hands folded snuggly and tight
    they are tiny and weak yet they know what is right.
    During all the long hours from daylight til dawn,
    there is plenty indeed for my two hands to do. :D

  3. Love those hands Carol. Tells a great story. Yes, mother's hands never sit idle do they! Enjoy your week.

  4. Hi Carol-
    Such a beautiful post, so true! I am so happy to be out of the "biz" world but gosh I have never worked so hard and it is all so worth it! I love your art just stunning!
    How have you been enjoying our weather? Gorgeous! Although I do get a little nervous with the winds. I'm going to enjoy it before the rain starts up again. Enjoy your weekend friend!

  5. I agree with you...They do keep us busy ! I loved reading are doing the most important job. This is a very nice thankful post.

  6. Holaaa Carol!! Yes, we should do a little tribute to our hands every day!! I guess mine is taking care of them with a little massage and handcream :)

    Hope you have a wonderful day my sweet friend!!


Who doesn't love a colorful message? Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day=0)
