Patient, Persevering Hands

Teaching a craft class at a nursing home lets me see many kinds of beautiful hands.

Hands that struggle but succeed.

Young, caregiving hands that stop what they're doing to help out a little bit.

Two pairs of hands working together.

Aged, but still nimble.

Hands that hesitate, trying to remember what they're supposed to accomplish.

Hands that are stiff and move painfully and slowly, but never abandoning their task.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I've been doing this craft class for 3 years and it is still a challenge-but very worthwhile.
