An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked

My Mother’s Hands


My mother’s hands have touched so many things;

Picked up the pieces,
Pieced the shattered back together,
Mended broken hearts,
Fed hungry mouths,
Nurtured and nourished hungry minds,
Gripped the wheel and steered towards home,
Soothed, hugged, and held us tight.
Held on and didn’t let go;

My mother’s hands have touched so many lives.

Happy Mother’s Day.
