My Hands

My hands look worn, marked by the passing of time,
Of sunlight, cold, heat and work.
They have baked, cooked, gardened and harvested,
They have held the hands of devastated people sitting in front of a casket,’
They have soothed fevered brows, wrapped gifts with a smile on my face.

They have held many pudgy little hands of toddlers learning to walk, 
And now hold the hand of my older, stumbling friend.

They are covered with sunspots, but they are happy spots.
A legacy of many bright hours spend in my flourishing garden, 
Of romantic walks, of picnics with friends, of games played with children, 
And of time spend alone, out in nature, replenishing myself.

My hands, adorned with rings, showing my commitment to my Love,
 Carrying my birthstone ring, a present of my Sweetheart, 
And in rememberence of my Mom, her favorite ring. 
My hands are a mirror of my life.

    Thank you, dear Carol, for your so very kind words! We had a very wonderful weekend spend at our oldest daughter's house, complete with baseball game, fireworks, and much fun. I hope you enjoyed your weekend also. Love, Bridget

    Very beautiful, things were welling up in me as I read. I must say this struck me on so many levels, at so many times in my life, but left me very thankful for what I have and have had. Thank you so much for sharing.
