hands of time

Hands of time are so very beautiful. 
Hands of one who has lived a long life often have skin that is deeply etched with the wrinkles of time. These hands tell us stories of love and hardship. In these hands I see a person who may have toiled long hours creating a life for all those around them more comfortable, always striving to do the very best with what they had. I also see hands that may have held their partner, little children…possibly their own sons, daughters, grandchildren and sometimes great grandchildren. These hands are hands of love that remind me of my Mom and Dad's beautifully etched hands.
