Loving Hands: a reblog for 29th December

I am reblogging this from 2014 in response to Amy’s Random Word Prompt Touch.
It didn’t see much traffic at the original time of posting, so I hope you enjoy it this time around.

We touch with our hands, and I thought of this carving:
The picture was taken in November 2019 shortly after my surgery.   This was the other end of it. Isn’t it fabulous?



Max Bygraves (16 October 1922 – 31 August 2012 ) sang ‘You need hands’ in 1958.
What you may not know is that he wrote it too.

 You Need Hands lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

You need hands
To hold someone you care for
You need hands
To show that you’re sincere
When you feel
Nobody wants to know you
You need hands
To brush away your tear

When you hold a brand new baby
You need tender hands to guide them on their way
You need hands
To thank the Lord for living
And for giving us this day

 When I look at mine these days, they are a long way from the nail bitten, spot and wrinkle free straight fingered appendages of yesteryear.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
