Little Hands

I was privileged this weekend to spend some quality time with my college roommates. The purpose of the gathering was to meet the first baby, born three months ago to the day. What a joy it was to touch those little fingers!

Isn't it incredible how much potential each baby's hands hold? Who can count the number of mud puddles those hands will splash in, or how many jungle gym monkey bars they will cling to? How many times will those hands slip into mommy's or daddy's bigger ones? How many people will those hands help throughout his lifetime? The promise in those little fingers is indescribable.

It brings me hope.
