Simply Amazing Photo Idea

Recently I went to Oklahoma to visit my grandmother.
We usually go every year but this time, my WHOLE family came.
I LOVE MY FAMILY!
 It's pretty rare to get all of us together in one place
so we took a LOT of pictures!
 
This is my Grandma and her youngest great-grandchild, my niece Sadie.
Grandma Nolen always wears gingham. It's my favorite. =)
 
While they were interacting, my sister-in-law took these amazing pictures of their hands.
I just love them.
These hands belong to my hero.
 These hands have made 1,000's of meals.
These hands have crocheted 100's of baby blankets.
 These hands have lead music, dug gardens, and dried tears.
 These hands have buried loved ones and welcomed new ones.
These hands have paved the way.

It's such a simple idea, and yet very profound.
Please, do this if you have the chance.
They are priceless.
