Full Hands Means A Full Heart

Have you heard the expression “You must have your hands full” in response to you having children? Yeah, I thought so. These people are usually well-meaning. I mean kids can be quite the handful. They require a lot of love, care. and time. But I think if you read between the lines of this common expression, you can see that they really mean that they see a  full heart of love when you’re with your little ones.

“If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.”

Whether you’re a parent biologically, via adoption, or however your children come to you, these little kids that grow into big kids will always be in your heart.
