Five Minute Friday: Hands

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.
~ Sam Levenson

June is the FLX/WordCount Blogathon!  Join us for 30 Days of blogging madness!

o much to do at my day job today, and a couple of great events happening tonight in town, so I’m way behind in getting this written/posted AND making sure I catch an earlier enough train home to get to the fun writerly and artsy events.

My writer friend Drusilla over at Loved As If, told me about Five Minute Friday and as I’m strapped for time, best time to try it out is now.

So without further ado….

To me, big, work-roughened hands have the sexiest feel in the world.  I don’t know why that is.  Maybe because my own hands are soft.  Even though I work in my garden, mow the lawn with a walk behind mower, and scrub and paint furniture and crafty things, I always wear gloves.  Not to mention I have more bottles of lotion than some bath stores.

Hands create.  They build and mold and type what the imagination dreams. 

Hands welcome.  They open doors, set a table, cook a meal.

Hands are great.  They are attached to arms, which are even better.  Hands hold, introduce, get to know.  And then arms hug.  And hold some more. 

A symbol of trust and security  ~ however illusory and fleeting it may be.

Five Minute Friday is an ever-growing group of bloggers who write for five minutes flat each Friday on the same prompt that Lisa Jo Baker posts each Thursday evening. It’s five minutes to see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing. Those without a blog can post their five minute piece as a comment on Lisa Jo Baker’s blog. For more details, visit Five Minute Friday.
