Hands of T.T.W.D.

  January 1 st  marks a New Year.  A clean slate ( thank God, am I wrong here fellow GOOBers?).  More importantly it is my 3 month Blogiversary <- okay THAT title is a work in progress.  It almost appears to be the title of a End of the World Epic, where Wil Smith saves us all yet again.....although the perhaps that is not so far off...minus Wil Smith.  Barney looks NOTHING  like Wil Smith.

Anywho.....I was debating on what to post.  The funny thing about blogging, at least for me - I don't actually get to pick my posts.  They pick me.  Sure send the guys with the white jackets I'm ready.

Seriously. Something pops in my head and it won't leave until I write it down.  Quite frankly it is annoying at times.  Ask Barney.  We used to have computer restrictions, but I would get so distracted during that time if a post was waiting to burst out, I was useless anyway.  Oh I know..I know..the troubles I have.

I really wasn't going to mention the 3 month thing. I'm sure you are all thinking BOY oh  BOY does she ever have a talent for breakdowns if she's managed allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll of that in a mere 3 months!  I also wasn't going to give you a recap on my little adventure so far, as I have upwards of 70 posts, you've already read my life since the starting pistol went off.

My post today is about Hands.  Oh and before you spankos get ALL excited,  not really going to focus on this kind of hand action


 Since we have started on this ADVENTURE - Yes I decided a while ago to start a thesaurus for Dd...out with the Never ending journey for me...in with  the Adventure of Dd !  
( cue trumpets )




....hands have become a key part of ttwd.  Yes there is the spanking hand that is true. ( MORE true for some than others).  But there are hands that I think are more important.  Hands that I haven't seen in a long time or if ever.  


 Where once there were accusing hands, with fingers pointing to the one we thought was to blame ....


I am overjoyed to say there are hands that reach out and grab, pulling in for a loving embrace

 There are now hands that not only are held on a long walk for exercise, but for the short jaunt from the vehicle into the grocery store.

                                                     There is also more of this lately too..

 and a lot more of this ( note the sex of the hands )




 The all time favourite hand action in my house, hands down ( pun intended) is in part shown in this picture


 His hand that since the beginning  of our adventure, has  brushed the hair out of my face.  Wiped away multiple tears. Cradled my jaw in the palm of it, and caressed my face with his thumb.  Such simple, simple actions that mean so much more as a gesture.

Tttwd.  Has really brought hands into the forefront of my mind.  Mostly in a physical way in our house 



But there are other hands that have played a key part in MY personal adventure into the world as a Dd wife. Hands that I have never seen. Hands that I will probably never see. But  hands that I have  felt their reach from all over the world.


Your hands.  




The hands that after reading a post, whether it is about Weepy Willie, or deliriously happy Wilma, or some other ramblings,( most likely after you have wiped your face in frustration or given your laptop Shaken Computer Syndrome), have done this



They have sent ( initially ) a virtual stranger, a piece of advice, a word of encouragement, a little chastising note.  It may have been in a comment box, or in an email, and then eventually for some of you in a google chat window.   Oh yes and let us not forget that one of you has actually used your hands for this

( although that has a tendency to cause a little, teeny, tiny, bit of trouble...so I'll move on)


No matter how you have decided to use your hands to reach out to me, it is just as much appreciated now as it was at the beginning of my adventure.  Probably even more so now, because some days I feel like I am posting the same thing I posted last week, or last month.  Yet somehow you all manage to find some way to say something just a little different.  And to not make me feel like you can't believe I am doing this AGAIN...

Guess it is a good thing I can't see your hands, as perhaps some days you may envision them doing this to me

Your hands bring to me your words.  For many of you your words bring to me your heart.  Your words more often than not do this



Your heart always does this



When I started off 2012,  I don't think I even knew about Dd and ttwd. Now we are on an adventure to make our marriage all it can be for us.  Using Dd as a tool to help us.  But the biggest change so far has come with the help of your hands.  If it wasn't for all of you, sharing and caring, we would have been lost.  Actually we never would have started.  I felt alone for a long time, before we started ttwd.  

And although I will most likely never hear most of your voices, I hear you loud and clear ....through your hands.



Surround yourself with people who make you better, who help you grow, who love & celebrate you! You become a product of what you are around! ~Paula White.



 You are those people to me.  I thank you.  I am honoured to have you as friends.  By the way in Willie's World and her Dd thesaurus- when describing people outside of Blog Land  they will no longer be Real Life friends...they will be Face To Face Friends (FTFF<- memorize it) because- life and friends don't get any more real than in ttwd together in Blog Land.

From my hands I extend my love to you all

Willie

  1. That is such a wonderful connection, using hands to express so very much. It is like they become a connection of our eyes which connects to our heart and soul.

    1. Interesting, so if the eyes are the windows to the soul, than the hands would be the expression of the heart outward?

  2. Awww Willie, such a beautiful post. Extending my hands in love and friendship to you also.

    Hugs, Love, and Blessings,

    1. I'm pleased that you liked it Cat!

      I came across the picture of Fred spanking Wilma, and in my limited computer expertise altered it to be Barney...

      Much love to you

  3. Such a lovely post Willie. It's truly amazing that his hands have seemed to change. Though they are the same, they "feel" different.

    This really is a wonderful community who continually offers suport and encouragement. Some of my FTFF are not so helpful. I am honored to be apart of this great group of people.

    ((((Hugs))))

    1. Hello P!

      It is interesting how we allow the hands of change really. For it begins within us, and then they no longer feel that they are going to get burned or we are going to recoil from their touch. It continues from there.

      The community is amazing. I believe in part because if you are yourself here, warts and all, you open yourself up to so many wonderful things. I think that our FTFF would be helpful if we were brave enough to open up, ( for the record I am not talking about ttwd)but they would have to to..so for now, here we are :)

      I'll take those hugs, thank you!

  4. Yea! I'm happy YOUR hands make their way to my google chat window! LOL
    It's been great to get to know you and lucky for me, it's only 3 months in for you, so that means you'll be around awhile!

    So - Hats off to your hands, Barney's hands (lol), and everyone else's hands.. because they are all connected in some way here in this world.
    Oh and I agree with your term, FTFF and for "real life" friends... I think I am more open here in blog world then to anyone ever in my "FTFF" life. I can really relate here and wish I had everyone as a neighbor or at least in a town near me!


    Happy 3mth Blogiversary!

    1. I promise you Emi I will be here for you no matter which path we take in the future. You can't get rid of me that easily. Am I that great of a person? Um no....more stalker-like *wink*

      I too am happy for our friendship! Our laughs are too much at times!

      It is true about our FFTF relationships, but I still hold by what I said to P, I think if we step outside of comfort zone outside of blog land it can be like that there too. Actually I know it can, if you are fortunate to be blessed with good friends. It takes trust. BUT there isn't naked bum talks there as much...so where's the fun in that? I kid..

      Love Ya!

  6. Do you realize how many terms relating to DD include the hands? Taken-in-Hand, Under his hand, held in his hands? I am endlessly fascinated by Ward's hands. I love to hold them, touch them, stroke them, kiss them, I love his hands on me, they communicate so much, without a single word. Just the other day I looked at my hand cradled in his, and I said...I like my hands, especially when they are in yours.

    I appreciate every single person in this community who has extended their hands, across lines of geography, philosophy, and dynamic, and I am humbled by the friendships we have made here.

  7. Just a beautiful, wonderful post. I smiled and nodded my head at everything. I couldn't agree more about this great community and we are all lucky to be able to share our trials and tribulations with each other and give each other a hand.

    1. Thank you Zoe.

      Your words are too kind. I smiled throughout writing this post too. I teared up, thinking of this great community. I have had such wonderful advice, and so many hands picking me up. I'm even grateful for hands that have given me a slap on the wrist too ( you know who you are...ALL of you ). I am not just providing lip service when I say we couldn't have made this far without this community. It is the truth.

      Nice to 'see' you again :)

  8. Hey Wilma, has it only been three months lol. I'm kidding! It has been both an honour and a priviledge to share your journey with you. Thank you so much for extending your hand in friendship and support and I gladly reurn the same (I hope!) I would love to google chat with you.

    Love this post, it's amazing the friendships we find in this community. As June said, there are a lot of references to hands in ttwd. Hey.. Check out the title of my blog lol

    love the pic of Barney spanking Wilma, very clever. I note the rather satisfied look on his face lol

    1. I know right eh? <- a little Canadiana thrown in for you and Rick. Only 3 months, seems like I've been whining forever doesn't it? lol

      We should sooooo google chat! Much quicker than email chat when the tea/coffee is on :)

      You return the support and friendship tenfold my friend. I cherish all of our correspondences!

      There are a lot of references to hands in this blog community, but I was more interested in expressing how all of you hand a HAND in helping us ...at least for this post.

      Barney does face does look like he is part of a parade float doesn't it? I wish I had THAT Wilma's butt !

      Much Love and BIG Hugs my friend

  9. Got to 'hand' it to you Willie, you write some beautiful posts :) You have been there with a helping hand for me too, which is soooo much appreciated. I love this post, and one that I feel I will come back to read again, and again.

    1. Aw M3 thank you. I'm not sure how helpful I actually am, but I can certainly listen, mostly because it is difficult to interrupt in a chat window- although I have found ways :)

      I appreciate your friendship and our different day talks too! Even Silence's hellos!

      Much love to you too!

  10. I LOVE this! You had me going last night with the whole hand thing....this is indeed a good one :)

    It is amazing how people we may never see face to face....know so much more about us, than people we have known our whole lives. The people in Blogland have been so kind and helpful....I agree we would be lost without all of them too :)

    I for one, that you keep using YOUR hands to type out all of these posts that make me smile, shake my head, giggle, help me see something a different way....and yes sometimes make me want to take MY hands and strangle you....but ya know in a loving sort of way *wink*

    Much love my friend....

      Oh you don't have to worry about not seeing Moi face to face...tee hee...stalk up on the bottles of submission Ryan!

      We all could potentially be lost without each other that is for sure. I know I'd be lost without you :)--you are highly entertaining! oh yeah, and helpful as in what NOT to do *wink*

      I'll keep posting as long as the voices in my head tell me too---but you'll never escape me anyway!

      Much Love to you ( even if you do want to strangle me..btw, back of the line- no cutting in!).

    1. Virtual Exploding Fist Bump?! Man you guys have the coolest stuff in the States- stupid Canadian Customs!

      I'll tentatively take the bear hug- a little scared as you know my height and well your um....well the whole Fredrick's,um....the things encased in it. or them...Heck- your Giant mammalian protuberances! I'm afraid I'll suffocate!

      So is that hug now a strangle?

  16. I love this post!! It is absolutely true!!
    It crazy how our HoH's hands can be so loving, tender, comforting, gentle, and at yet deliver a nice painful sting when needed or deserved.

    Thanks for extending your hand to email, google chat, and even the phone...until the bill comes in and we are grounded from each other. LOL

  17. A 'nice' painful sting Emma? ....go on...

    Thank you for your enthusiasm!!

    Oh I sooooooooooooooooo think I am paying THAT bill right away. Wait. How is that not submissive? Bill paid on time. I used to be afraid of internet limits, now it is phone limits. They wouldn't really ground us from each other would they? Heck I might, *might* take the silicone spreader thing over that.

    Love Ya ( I'll forgive the no love because I know you are using your phone, and I guess all those exclamation marks at the beginning of your comment tired you out!)

  18. Willie, this is a touching post, poignant and thought provoking. I loved it and found myself agreeing with your assessment of the fellowship we enjoy in this community. I think we extend hands sometimes because we are in the dark ourselves, and reaching out makes us feel like we are not so alone...
    I am very proud of you, Willie. More than you can know.
    Hugs and love
    Happy New Year,

    What is it about the New Year that makes us all so weepy? This year more so for me -since we started ttwd.

    Sorry I made you teary eyed, but that is a good thing- because that means you have felt the love and connection that I mentioned in the post.
