On the journey of life, today, more than ever, the world needs gentleness.
Reaching out to others
Gentle hands doing kind deeds.
Today, more than ever, the world needs compassion and strength.
Helping those in need
Strong hands reaching out to do what is right.
Today, more than ever, the world needs laughter.
Lifting each other up when times are hard.
Hands that clap and rejoice, making music and fun.
Today more than ever the world needs love.
Showing care through a touch, no matter the place
Hands that stroke and give comfort, hug and embrace.
It starts at home. Being gentle. With everything and everyone.
Our hands are a gift to be used. Since my mum’s been in a care facility one of the best ways I can reach her is with my hands. Holding her hand, stroking her, calming and showing her I care. She may not be able to talk but I believe that the power of touch can reach a person’s soul. Speaking without words.
And gentleness and kindness extends to every living creature.
Where would we be without the use of our hands?
There’s so much beauty around us to be found, sometimes right under our noses.
When we’re traveling, capturing those special moments, through our camera lens is what makes being in the great outdoors so enjoyable. Making us feel so alive.
And so much fun, especially when we get creative!
Isn’t it amazing how much our hands can hold, when we put our mind to it.
At the end of the day let’s toast to what we have in our life.
May we be grateful for the things we often take for granted, the simple things that mean so much, whether it’s a hug, a smile or just holding hands.
I wish you all love, laughter, happiness and peace as we reach out to others and continue our journey.
