My Strong Fingers

By Audrey Geliga

PROMPT—Privilege ...

My strong fingers have held my children when they needed me the most and in times when I just wanted a hug and to feel them close. My strong fingers spent many months and six years writing about my children with special needs, so I wouldn’t cry as much and be as sad as much, and I wouldn’t feel alone. These strong fingers have helped others in similar situations and because of this, I now have strong, ever-lasting friendships. These strong fingers learned how to practice Reiki and meditation so they could help calm all of the anxiousness that was overrunning my body when three and half years ago, my daughter ended up in the hospital. These strong fingers, I hope will continue to work their magic as I continue on this journey we call Life.
