There are only two ways to live your life.

One is as though nothing is a miracle.

The other is as if everything is.

- Albert Einstein, physicist

Yesterday as I was carefully making an Izannahesque hand, I was thinking about the intricacies of how we are made, and the wonder of the way our hands work. It is easy to take them for granted - at least until arthritis or an injury makes us notice them in a different way. I am very thankful for my hands, for being able to paint, to sew, to cook, to create, to comb my puppy's hair, to scrape the ice from the van, to cut my kids' hair, to play the piano....the list goes on and on.

Every day that I wake up and I can still use my hands to create (art - dolls - music) I am thankful.........Thanks for reminding me again :-D
