Blessing of the Hands by Victor Hugo

“These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.”

Good character is:
Showing love when those around you are not lovable
Having joy when those around you are discouraged or discontent
Exuding peace when those around you are anxious
Practicing patience when those around you are hurried and frantic
Reaching out in kindness when those around you are in conflict
Shining with goodness when those around you do evil
Standing in faithfulness when those around you have no comitment
Flowing with gentleness when those around you are harsh and cruel
Demonstrating self control when those around you have none
