My hands have massaged my twin nephews since birth. This loving touch not only reduced their muscle strains, lumps, and torticollis, but allowed them better sleep and created a physical bond between us.

My hands are a gift that have cared for patients from the beginning of life to the end of life. I have assisted with delivering babies to caring for patients at the end of life. My hands are a gift that have provided care and comfort to my best friends....my kennel of Siberian Huskies.

I must go visit my 96 year-old grandmother everytime I go home. She is in a nursing home suffering from dementia. She may not know my name and that I am 1 of 30 grandkids but she knows me. During my visit I use my hands and with my favorite lotion Eucerin I give her hands, arms, legs and thighs a good massage. I always say "night, night" before I start because this always puts her to sleep.

My hands lovingly held my mother's very warm hands. She was dying from Alzheimer's disease She did not know me, but I knew she knew me on another level. I told I loved her and that is was okay to leave this world. Of course, I told her MANY other things, but I never let go of her hands until I left her in the Alzheimer's unit.
She died peacefully the very next day - 8/23/2012.

The intricacy of the human hand is a miracle. My hands are broad with short fingers, a gift from my Dad. My hands have allowed me to assist babies into this world & held the hands of the dying, including those of my father. They have done needlework that has gone as far as Canada, Norway, & South Africa, & sutured surgical incisions. They have expressed love in many ways, what I see as the most important work of human hands.
