When we create something, whether it’s a work of art or even just a simple meal, we put a lot of thought into the creation. Our bodies are creations from the Creator of all that is, so it makes sense that we are very thoughtfully designed beings as well.
Our eyes were placed in the front of our head so we remember to always face forward, yet we have the ability to look behind us and remember the lessons we’ve learned along the way.
Our nose prominently displays its dual importance, signified by two nostrils. It warms and moisturizes every life giving breath we take, enhanced by the beautiful fragrances of nature, but it also warns us when our body is not functioning well or when something is not good for us.
There are always two sides to every story, so we have been designed with two ears, one at each side of our head, to remind us to always listen to both sides.
Our mouth allows entry to the food, water, and air that sustains our bodies, but it also allows us to verbally share the thoughts of our choosing and helps us express our emotions.
Our head is home to all these essential parts, along with the means to make everything either work together, or independently, as needed.
Our hands are designed to be able to both nurture and create. Our arms are able to bend towards our heart so we may hold and carry those things that we choose to hold close to it, but they are also able to reach out to others to both give and receive help.
Our legs give us the ability to move from one place to another. We can walk backwards and sideways, or even stand still if we choose to, but our feet are pointed in a direction that will keep us moving forward most often while we are on our path.
Our torso connects all our moving parts into a cohesive unit and holds within it the essential parts that enable the soul to interact within this experience, including ways that we can give back to the Earth with carbon dioxide for the plants and fertilizer for the soil. Most importantly, motivated by the gift of a way to physically connect with each other, it allows us to create another body that will be used to experience yet another aspect of life.
All in all, I think our Creator did a pretty good job with the basic design, but original creations usually come with flaws; flaws that can make them priceless.
Every soul who is born into this human existence is a flawed, one of a kind, irreplaceable, original creation.
Let us respect one another as if we were each a work of art from a deceased artist who will never create again. Let us appreciate each other the same way we appreciate the flavors of a wonderful meal that will be gone once we have eaten it.
Let us remember that we are all priceless.

My name is Laura Mozer Davis, and I was born over half a century ago. My life’s journey has included raising three children as a single parent while caring for my parents who both became disabled during the last 10 years of their lives. Now that my children are grown and my parents have passed into the next part of their journey, I finally have time for me to grow as a person, not as just a care-giver. What I am learning, however, is that my destiny is to always be a care-giver. When I started writing for The Daily Sisterhood blog, I realized that I was to continue my care-giving through my writing. If my words help even just one person find either solace or joy, I know my life continues to have meaning.
