They say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. I think in many ways that is very true. Take for instance your hands. Look at them. 5 fingers all meeting at a fleshy palm attatched to your arm by a wrist. Most of us don't really pay attention to them at all. We don't take the time to care for them, some of us might rub some cream into them or spend time on the nails but the actual hand itself is pretty much ignored.

Now, while looking at your hands imagine if you can't use them. Or that they didn't respond properly. Imagine if they shook when you tried to do fine motor things like do up buttons or tie shoelaces. Imagine trying to pick up a cup but your hands not gripping properly or not having the strength to lift it. Now start thinking of all the things you do during the day that require the use of your hands......yeah.....all of a sudden they're pretty important aren't they?

From personal grooming to opening doors; communicating, expression, creativity; preparing and eating food; so many things that your hands do every day.

You will miss them terribly if they ever stop working or don't work as they should. If that ever happens it will change your life in so many ways.

Be nice to your hands. Take care of them. Pamper them every now and then. They mean more to you than you realise.

    A very random blog topic.
    But I can relate, as I have quite a few issues with one of my hands - probably related to working too much with salt water on the fishing boats.
