A Mother’s Hands…
reach out to bless her children and
reach up to praise the Lord.
They’re always loving, often praying, and
ever giving more than she keeps for herself.
A mother’s hands may tire,
but they never expire in their efforts
to do good for those she loves.
A mother’s hands may age,
But her influence lasts forever.

Every mother’s hands tell a story. The picture above shows my mother’s hands on her 90th birthday. A skilled musician, her amazing hands filled her home with music even in the last years of her life. Six words that described her hands: Youthful, Busy, Talented, Serving, Caring, Generous.
Mom’s hands are still now, but we still hear her songs through home recorded CD’s. I’m sure heaven is hearing them now as well. We miss you, Mom.
What six words describe your mother’s hands? What kind of story do (did) they tell?
