Little boys
When you speak
I can't help but kiss your cheeks
I love the way you grab my hands
And tell me all about your plans

Stories read, Prayer is said
Close your eyes, sleepy head
While angel linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings

Just like you, I was small, not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask
When you reach for the stars
Don't forget who you are
Please don't turn around and grow up way to fast
See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life's an hourglass

Lyrics by Mindy Gledhill

Oh my Dearest and Most Precious Jesus,
You have blessed me with these two little boys.  They are mine to return to You, having grown in virtue and having learned what it means to truly love and serve You, Who is Perfect Love.  
Guide me in raising them so that they may forever keep You in the center of all that they do.
Please Dear Jesus, give Nicholas and Isaac the Grace to offer everything that they have and all that they are, to You.  I want them, more than anything, to be Your true delight, Father
Love, kerry ann
