Three Generations

What a beautiful photo of three generations of hands. My Mum's 90 year old hands have seen a lot in their lifetime. She grew up on the land, where her parents had a dairy and a beef cattle property. Those hands milked cows day in, and day out. Then when she grew up, she became a nurse, so her hands tended and soothed a lot of people. When she married, she had three children, and her hands cooked, bathed, washed, ironed, knitted, and played. Then there was a lot of crocheting, praying, doing crosswords, and gardening. My daughter's beautiful smooth hands, on the other hand (pardon the pun), have a lifetime of experiences in front of them. Our hands together express all of our love and support for each other through the years.
