Little Hands

They look like tiny versions of ourselves and truly that is what they are, but at the same time they have so much personality all their own. They have this innocence that you can only possess when you are young. They have all these big concepts with such a tiny vocabulary, they find such interesting ways to show you what they mean. What a wonderful thing to be able to hold the world with such tiny strings.

  1. My niece taps her chin, like you once did in deep thought. She pulls her hair back in a ribbon when she can't see her inner-workings clearly. Just like your daughter did. She sings to herself while cooking, as my sister did. She knows you as her ancestor. She knows you are her namesake. And she loves you, like I did.
