My Grandpa’s Hands…

Tell us about your letter!:
I was blest with a wonderful grandfather who was truly an inspiration to me and I was thinking that who he was can best be described by his hands…
When he was just a teen, Grandpa was in WWII. As a Veteran his hands were that of a survivor, his hands were protecting, his hands were American.
When he had his own business and used his jeweler hands, my grandfather was artistic, creative, and delicate;
When Grandpa was at home using his farmer hands, they were hard-working and strong;
When it was time for his golfer hands (and he loved those hands) they were gripping , focused, and determined;
As a family man, Grandpa’s hands were always loving, dedicated, and generous;
Once he became a grandfather his hands were supporting, comforting, and fun;
And when he used his DING DONG hands (my favorite) they were truly caring, silly, one of a kind, and always Young at Heart!
