A Touching Reminder: Our Fingertips Remind Us of Our Blessings


My mother often told me that I could be anything I wanted to be when I grew up, as long as it wasn’t an elephant. She explained that people don’t ride elephants; they might have ridden on them in the past, but now they just rode in cars like we did. It was easy to understand her point, but my four-year-old self had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up, so it didn’t really matter whether or not I could be an elephant rider or not.


What are our blessings?

This is a touching reminder that we are blessed with our very existence. Every time we wash our hands, touch someone, or eat our lunch; the daily actions that we take for granted give us pause to reflect on the value and beauty in these mundane gestures. These small reminders can help us live more mindfully and fully appreciate what we have.


#1- Hands are instrumental in shaping who you will become in your lifetime, so it’s important to make sure that you’re choosing an occupation that suits your personality.


#2- A hand shake can be a sign of peace, a gesture that exemplifies respect for one another, or it could just be a friendly hello! Whatever the case may be, remember how valuable those fingers are when shaking someone else’s hand.
