Hands

Day 3′s challenge is HANDS….

I don’t have pretty hands. They are great for knitting. Great for holding a book. Great for gardening. Great for wrapping packages, baking, using the mouse to look at other people’s blogs and still neglect my own, great for teaching small children. But they aren’t pretty…

I am a type 1 diabetic, and my hands show the scars of finger pricks. ~ Pharmacist every other month: “You take your blood sugar 6-10 times a day!?!” ¬†Yes, my favorite Target Pharmacist… I do. It’s my life line. The only way I know exactly how I’m doing and what is wrong with me. I’d much rather have to prick my finger and take extra insulin, or have to eat a snack than wind up in a hospital in a coma, or with an IV….

SO, my hands are not pretty. They are not very girly (as much as I’d like them to be light and delicate.) But they work hard. And I love them.
