We had a ‘first’ in our house today…Eli painting for the first time. I love making memories with our wee family so so much, these things I will never forget.
We started off doing hand and foot prints!! We did wee Eva’s feet first and then Eli’s hand and foot prints. It was fun although Eva didn’t quite think so, don’t think she appreciated the feeling of cold paint on her feet!
Have to admit, my heart was a bit sad today that we couldn’t do Eva’s hand prints. I know someday soon we WILL get to do her wee handprints and I’m excited for that already. I am sure that sounds so silly to some of you but these are the things that I feel at times and that’s ok. It says in Psalm 34 v 18 ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted’. I also cling to Hebrews 11 v 1 ‘Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.’
So at the end of the afternoon these were the masterpieces that I will treasure forever!!
