There is nothing more beautiful than a child's hands, and no simpler way to convey love than the touch of a hand. This is especially true when it comes to Jack because his hands are the only part of his body he can freely move. As I've mentioned before, there is an ineffable peace you feel when you take hold of Jack's hand.

As I was looking through pictures of Jack, I was surprised by the number of pictures I found of people holding or touching Jack's hand. The pictures reflect Jack not only giving, but often times receiving, the peace and joy that comes from the touch of a hand.

Because, as they say -- pictures speak a thousand words -- I put together a montage to share.

Wishing you a week of peace and joy!
