Short and Very, Very Sweet

This is the Hooligan a couple of summers ago. This little video clip is a happy place I go to when I need to remember that things are beautiful.

In case you can't understand his 3-year-old speech, he's saying:
"For the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

This is for Marie at The (Not Always) Lazy W.


  1. This is too cute. He's wonderful! Did such a great job. You too, for teaching and encouraging him.

  2. Very beautiful. Thanks for sharing your sweet moment, and I love that you were able to get it on video so you can have it indefinitely, even when Hooligan is much older.

  3. Adorable! What a wonderful happy place to go to. My one niece is stunning, the most gorgeous girl ever. But this one picture of her taken with 'Santa Claus' a few years ago makes her look absolutely hideous, with this almost alien face. When I need to go to a happy place, I pull out that picture from my wallet and have a good laugh. Never fails. Yours is a bit more wholesome;)

  4. I am giggling and crying at the same time!! (Not pretty.) Thank you. Thank you so much, I LOVE how he emphasizes the end with his little head shake. He is 100% precious, and you have done a great thing teaching him such pure, encouraging piece. Thanks a million for sharing this. Much love to you from Oklahoma. xoxo

  5. Like Marie, I noticed the head shake at the end. His own little emphasis. Adorable.

  6. I, too, loved the "No" emphasis head shake at the end, how cute. [hugz] (I have been meaning to ask, are you very close to University Place? My son and his wife live there. I also discovered that author William Gibson grew up there, and went to high school just a little ways from where my son lives.)


Thanks for reading and taking the time to say hello!
