“Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” We’ve heard that expression a zillion times. And I’m sure that I’ve bit that hand just as many times, but now I’m beginning to understand the truth behind the worn out cliché.
That hand will eventually close into a fist…not one intended for violence, but it becomes something that can’t do what an open hand can do…give. Whether that be money, gifts, hugs or handshakes.
If you have an open hand in your life, be grateful for it. It may not give you everything you think you want and the irony is it probably wants to do more for you than it is able. Just appreciate the fact that it does way more than a fist.
And too often when a hand closes, so does the heart.
