DAILY PROMPT:   Automation has made it possible to produce so many objects — from bread to shoes — without the intervention of human hands (assuming that pressing a button doesn’t count). What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?

When tiny little fingers find a way to get the glue on the dried up macaroni, coloured beads, the leaf they found on the driveway or the feather that landed on their nose when they were going for a walk.  When all those special items end up on that special blue or yellow paper and you hear a tiny little voice say “Happy Birthday”.  You appreciate the joy a little ones handmade card can bring you.  It’s one of those little things above all else that you will prefer.
