Eline Saglik = health to your hands

Inspiration, Languageemily kisaComment

This is one of my favorite sayings in Turkish. There is a line over the g to make it soft g. This means "health to your hands". It is thanking the person for cooking something for you, making something for you, anything they did with their own two hands. I just like how it personalizes the thank you so much. You are really acknowledging that person's effort. We thanked our carpenter and his three boy's today for making Tequila's new dog house. Winter has come to Didim and brought the wind and rain. She needs a warm little spot.

Eline Saglik also reminds me also of Ben Harper's song, "My own two hands"

I can change the world
With my own two hands
Make a better place
With my own two hands
Make a kinder place
With my own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands
I can make peace on earth
With my own two hands
I can clean up the earth
With my own two hands
I can reach out to you
With my own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands

Im gonna make it a brighter place
Im gonna make it a safer place
Im gonna help the human race
With my own
With my own two hands

I can hold you
With my own two hands
I can comfort you
With my own two hands
But you got to use
Use your own two hands
Use your own
Use your own two hands

With our own
With our own two hands
With my own
With my own two hands

I think people forget that they can do things themselves sometimes. They look to the government or something else to fix, save, make their life or families lives better but there is a a lot one person or a group can do. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming to start because you do only have two hands.
