peace sign part 2..

the kiddos & i made a sign with one of my favorite quotes a few months back.  but, i hated my writing.  so, i spray painted it black, thinking i would use letter stickers & then have my munchkins paint it to make it look kinda like the subway art style.  that didn't work either.

here is the finished product.

i still hate my hand writing, but love the barely visible peace sign in the back & love my kiddos love & peace hand prints at the botttom (you may have to use your imagination on that one!). 

i still have 2 small paintings/signs i want to make for dear friends for christmas with a saying that is so fitting for our firiendships. 
"a friend is someone who knows the song in your heart & can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
&“ friends are those who lift you up when your heart's wings forget how to fly.”

these 2 friends have helped me through more than i can ever repay & they can ever imagine.  i thank god for their friendships multiple times a day. 

& of course, another inspirational quote i wanna put in our home:
 People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

our aunt donna has this in a frame in her home & i treasure reading it every time i see it.   

hope everyone has a blessed weekend!! xoxo - me
