Hang this in your home.

I dedicate this to my dog. You can dedicate this to your present family. I dedicate this to my mom. We can all dedicate this to the future families.

My family may “just” be me n’my dog, but we do all of this really well already. We’re real, we’re sorry, we do prayers before and after everything. We’re forgiving, we’re really loud. We cuddle.

And boy we do love.

Update: you can buy it here, on Etsy. We love Etsy.

Would also be nice just painted along the ceiling in any room, or on the stair risers entering you home! On a piece of old fence in your entryway! I’m all about repurposing everything! And yes I love adding We do forgiveness! Make it about whatever values make up your family! You can really have fun with this if you use your imagination! Thanks!
