You are very special in God’s eyes. God loves you very much!
Could that be why saying blessings to your child(ren) feels awkward?
Would it help if you first received a blessing for yourself? I’ve written one just for you! It’s a little gift to get you started on blessing your kids.

A blessing for caregivers…
_______, may you see every day as a new gift.
A new chance to be guided by God through all the moments,
both the taxing and the tranquil.
God is constantly whispering to you.
Do you hear?
“Hello _______. Today, let me use you to touch the lives of little ones around you.
(And the not so little ones too.)
You are perfect for the job I have for you.
Did you see the way I painted the sky with shades of pink, purple and orange?
You too are one of my limited editions!
I love you just the way you are.”
