  18. What a great post. All of the important people in my life - I know their hand as well as their faces. I can see my husband's playing his guitar, my boys' with fingers intertwined into mine, or holding a pencil writing me a story. I can see my mother's hands cooking, cutting and sewing, or my sister's flying around as she tells a story. When I think about my father, I can still feel his hands. His were a little rough, and he always loved to hold mine and tell me how smooth they are.

    I love this post.
    And that kitten. :)
