A friend of mine told me that she thought her hands were ugly. She has a couple of enlarged knuckles and her nails are not perfect but I think her hands are beautiful.

My friend's hands are competent hands. She spins, knits, weaves and does glass work. She has made gorgeous sculptures from clay. Her hands can bathe a dog, fix dinner, make beautiful things. She cares for her grandson too.

Picture perfect hands with manicure-shop nails are overrated in my opinion. Give me useful hands that can do things and I'll show you truly beautiful hands.
