Silver Lining: Five

January 17, 2011

Five


This is Sam.

Every time I see this picture,

I laugh

because for some reason

at first glance

it looks like he has six fingers

but don’t worry

he has five

very capable fingers

which he uses

to beat me at Loser

frequently

and to hold my hand

frequently

which is also how often

I realize I need to help out more

with my own five fingers

at home

like Julie,

who uses her five fingers to make us dinner

every

single

Sunday

which is the day I have meetings

after church

for hours

which is okay

because I love my calling

and it’s nice to feel

like I’m putting my five fingers

to good use

for the girls in my Relief Society

even though it’s

small

like the amount of free time

I currently have

small

like the smell of spring

gliding in the air today

five weeks early

and small

like the way my hands feel

when they’re safe

and warm

inside Sam’s

five

capable fingers.
