THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE IS

THE HAND THAT RULES THE WORLD—William Ross Wallace

 

I sometimes think, as mothers, we forget how important we actually are to our family.

Hugs and hand shakes. Holding hands and holding hearts. High fives and a thumbs up.

A wave and a warning.

A hand on the forehead, to check for temperature, a hand on the hip that says, “What was that all about?”.

Hands that smooth down fly away hair, and straighten collars.

Hands that text and dial numbers as reminders…and for checking to make sure everything is okay.

Touch is so important…it speaks to the heart.

It makes a difference.
