Hand it to me!

I enjoy photography, and so do many of my friends. Here is one of them, who knows the value of recording our personal stories ... I think we met in 1989 or 90 ... but thats going back a bit, for me!



The other day He surprised me with this picture of my hand, taken when I was a slip of a girl, almost 20 years ago (cough).



I almost didn't recognise this smooth and slightly chubby limb as mine, so long have I been looking down at my hands of late, as a craft worker and Mummy.


These hands have seen a lot of Arts and crafts, lived in different places and nursed four daughters. They currently paint, sew, clean, carry, chop and mix and turn pages, and type - I actually like computers now! Which is handy ...

This is fascinating - I prefer a well-used and interesting pair of hands to look at!

My hands also look completely different than they did 20 years ago and I like that. I want my life to be useful and when I look at them, I know that I have been.

How great that you have a photograph of your hand from 20 years ago! I know my hands have changed a lot since that time, they start to look more and more like my mother's. I love hands!
