My Prayer Each Day and I Want My Boys to Always Know This

Dear Lord I pray for guidance in all the things I do. For peace, and faith to have the trust to simply lean on you.

I pray for every heart I know and each I pray is with you. I pray for every move I make to teach my sweet ones of You.

I pray for every thing I do to touch their hearts for good. I pray that every time I speak I say it as You would.

The sad thing is I fail on these and each day make mistakes, but I pray for constant guidance and far better the next day.

My prayer most every moment is to grow in you each day and for my family's focus to always do the same.

I simply just have peace in knowing You are always near and always with Your angels placed around us far or near.

I pray for long and happy lives with my family in your presence and then for thankful togetherness always forever in Heaven.

In Jesus Christ Precious Name Amen

This is my nightly prayer, but noted in a poem. It's what I always pray. I want my boys and my entire wonderful family to know my love for them and how hard I try though I make so many mistakes. I pray their hearts reflect my prayers as answered always with a strong Christian Faith and heart that shows it. I felt the need to share.

Sweet dreams,

Momma Mia

Mother's Day Gifts or Any Day Gifts That Make Memories

   Over the years we have created and found some wonderful projects for Mother's Day that have made some of my favorite gifts and memories! These are perfect for special days and any day you want to give a special gift honestly. 
   I wanted to share several wonderful projects you can do with your children as fun DIY crafts at home that make the very best times with them and just the most precious keepsakes. 
   These all only require time and a few basic things such as paint, paper, and your kiddos! Perfect gifts for Mom's Day! 
   My very first to show you and the largest piece I have and LOVE is the outdoor scene made with only the kids hands, feet, and arms covered in paint! Your kids will enjoy and you get a beautiful memory with the size of their sweet feet and hands all over it! This was my Mom's idea and I just love, love, love it! Notice they used handprints for the clouds and sun, foot prints for the green tree tops, arms for the tree trunk, feet for the grass, and the side of their little fists for the flowers. :) 

Another one I love so much that I came across with an example of hand prints and changed to foot prints just because it was the most likely success with my little boy. He was just a few months at the time I first did one and not terribly fond of paint on his fingers. :) A foot print bouquet for Mother's Day! My favorite bouquet to date :)

If you have just recently had a special new addition to your family a keepsake shadow box is always special too! Include things you know held special value and add a few pictures if there is room. I have hospital bonnet, first little bottle, come home outfits, a blue pacifier used with our family to announce it was a boy, measurement tape, foot prints, and a tiny precious little blood pressure cuff. :) 

Have your kids make their own cards with their own art work. If they cannot spell yet take note of what they say they are writing while they make their lines and artistic touches and then include that note with the card! 

A photo shoot is another precious idea. You do not have to go to a professional photographer even. Just take them to a favorite spot and get pictures of them in their own natural setting smiling and playing and print these off and frame as a gift! 

All of these are priceless and the actual price is very low as well. They are made with love and memories which is the most wonderful gift you can give! 

Happy Mother's Day Weekend to all of the wonderful mothers out there with their lovely little blessings! 

Lots of Love,
Momma Mia
