These arms of mine have been through quite a bit in the past 38 years.
They moved a lot as a child...played on huge rocks oceanside in Puerto Rico, built snowmen in Washington State, cracked open coconuts in the Philippines, and built tree forts in Maryland.
They wrote papers in college -- BEFORE the internet...when you had to use a card catalog, encyclopedias, and microfiche for research.
They have done CPR.
They have started countless IV's.
They have held broken hearts.
They have handed a new mother her pink, screaming newborn....and then, on the same day, swaddled another mother's newborn as she faced the harsh reality that her baby would sleep eternally.
They embraced my husband and committed all my love to him on our wedding day.
They have held 3 perfect babies of my own, allowing each to nurse for nourishment and comfort.
They have transformed my kitchen to accommodate all things gluten free.
They have poked fingers, checked ketones, given shots, and inserted pump sites to my diabetic child.
Yes. These arms have done many things.
And today...today after waking at 4:30am to face my 2nd BodyBack Workout...
These arms did a push up!
