..especially when you can’t use one of them for a while.

handsSitting in my home for a record-breaking 10 days (and counting) in a row, I got to think about how lazy I was not to put my hands in good use. I could do all sorts of work in a painless way. I could finish all my writing and other tasks that I put on hold as a result of procrastination. I could turn to my blog and write down everything that comes to my mind. I could work from anywhere with that laptop I’ve got. I could go to Apu’s place and play around with Maisha for hours.

So many things I could do while both of my hands were working right.

In the proverb, they say, blessings are not valued till they are gone. If I were to take my hands as blessings, which they obviously are, they aren’t gone yet. But I’m beginning to realize the value of having two healthy hands at a full working condition.

I’m happy that I didn’t have to lose them somehow to realize how useful they are. My left hand is fine but I already feel incomplete without the right one. God made us perfectly with two hands to work together. Having two hands (and legs, and every part of the body) in a healthy state is indeed a divine gift.

Make best use of them while you have it.
