Hands Project - Lill

What my hands mean to me:


Hug my children and grandchildren, be able to button and dress myself.

Have the ability to pick things up, open a jar, door, work and clean, drive

a car and be self-sufficient. Put my hand over my heart and Pledge

Allegiance to the Flag of the United States. Beng able to write in a

beautiful cursive handwriting.


What my hands have done, can do, during my lifetime:


Have cooked, cleaned, loved and taken care of my family. Taken

photographs of family and friends. Painted, put down ceramic tile

flooring. Learned sign language.


What I think of my hands:


I've always felt my hands were too short and chubby, but then again

so is my body!!! Since I have gotten my nails done with acrylics... I feel

they look longer and nicer... more feminine. There are lots of veins... but

that is lots of years of love and work.
