Living mindfully this weekend: Your child's hands
When our babies are born, we often stare for long periods of time at their hands. Perhaps we remark on their long fingernails, the delicate fingers or the way their hand wraps around a parent's finger. As children get older, we don't have as many opportunities to just sit and gaze at their hands (and I get that this may not be at the top of your list of things to do with your child, too). This weekend, even if your child is asleep, take 30 seconds to look at his or her hands as you did when they were brand new, or brand new to you. Just try it. You may be surprised at what blooms.
