What do you do with your hands?

Have you noticed how people use their hands?  
Our hands are one of the physical attributes that separate us from other species. Our hands can grab things, pull things, touch things, and hit things. Our hands are tender enough to hold a baby and strong enough to break boards.
We hold hands, wash hands, cover hands with gloves, and shake hands. We have hand-me-downs, hand jobs, hand offs, and hand stands. We wear jewelry on our hands to show our attachment to another.
We put out our hand when being introduced to a stranger. We put out our hands in need. We put our hands together to pray. We wave our hands to acknowledge another.
Watch how people talk and you will notice how much the hand action tells about the individual personality. Some hold their hands in their pockets and some way their hands about emphasizing what is being said. Got to hand it to you, these things are fascinating.
So the next time you pick up a pen and sign your name, be thankful for your hands. Put your hands together.
