I used to be very proud of my hands. Slim fingers, nice oval long nails, soft smooth skin and clever at drawing and writing. Though they still are in good working condition, they aren’t pretty anymore. The skin has aged, the fingers are stubby now instead of slim and though the nails are still long and oval, they have ridges on them and break easily.
Or should I write an ode to my feet?
I have flat feet and perhaps have a world record of tripping everywhere. But what an asset to have feet that carry my weight everywhere. I walk many miles a week and all the weight is put on these flat feet, who also have arthritis to make things difficult for them.
I cannot decide who is the winner here. I think both are important in their own way. And I am blessed to have both set of extremities in working condition.
