Mother's Hands

How many stitches have these hands sewn? How many ears of corn have they shucked, pods of peas have they shelled, or green beans have they snapped? How many babies' bottoms have they patted or storybook pages have they turned?
Aren’t they lovely hands?


  1. True art! The eyes first look at design, color, skill at the hand of the artist, but the heart begins to look and it speaks so much louder than the brush. Thank you Helen for the work of your hands in blessing my heart today.

  2. I love seeing a grandparents hands holding a baby. The difference is touching. All the work and love that comes from such hands - Very sentimental painting.
