Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
Every one just needs a hand to hold on to...John Mellencamp
The other night when I was just about to doze off...my husband reached over and took my hand. I smiled...and went to sleep.
Now,anyone who knows me well, knows that I have always found holding another's hand a most touching gesture...Parents and their children...young couples...old couples...my heart skips a beat. What is it about this seemingly unassuming act that I find so captivating? I guess because it softly...silently speaks...of a bond...of love...of our humanity...pure and simple.
