We're still on the chapter about the skeletal system in Norah's science book. Norah's most recent science lesson said to tape her first two fingers of each hand together and to try and do everything the same as you would without the tape. This illustrated to Norah how important all the little bones in her hands really are and how perfectly God designed human hands in every detail for all we'd need them to do. There are a little over 200 bones in the whole body, half of those are in our two hands and feet alone! Norah was ready to take the tape off after only a few minutes, but I set a timer and made her wear the tape for ten more minutes, at the least. I think she was much more aware of and thankful for her healthy hands. I know I said a quiet prayer of thanks for my healthy hands and all the things that they can do that I take for granted.
