This week I've learned just how very special a right AND a left hand are to me.  I can't stop thinking of Bethany Hamilton, the surfer who got her arm chewed off by a shark.  It's a ridiculous comparison to my poor burned hand, but I just keep thinking how did she adjust!!??  
After using two hands for everything your whole life, narrowing it down to the use of one is hard!  I'm learning all kinds of things this week that are better done with full use of BOTH hands:

Pulling up your pants
Pulling down your pants
Bathing kids
Putting on a seatbelt
Buckling kids into car seats
Carrying groceries
Washing your hair
Cutting food
Eating a sandwich
Pushing a shopping cart
Hooking your bra
Wrapping presents
Making homemade burgers
Etc, etc, etc

And I've also learned how many things I do right handed even though I'm a lefty!  Especially brushing my teeth!

Count your blessings and always, always use a hot pad!!!

I'm impressed you are typing up all these blogs! It is so frustrating to be injured. Hope you heal quickly, and I will count my blessings as I pull my pants up and down with both hands today.
