a boy and his happy

happy lives in him. more than that, i think Jesus lives in him. I think Jesus shines out of this boy. this one exudes everything love. I often look at him and want more of what he has. it's this beautiful glow. it's this joy. complete joy that fills him all the way to the top and it overflows with goodness and giggles and happiness and love.
he already makes the world a better, happier place. but sometimes i just sit and imagine what my boys will do as grownups, how they will impact their world, the way they will touch others. this kid will spread his joy, i just know it. he will leave tiny footprints on every person's heart that he encounters. he will make all the world want what he has. i wouldn't even be surprised if he ended up serving in the mission field.
but he's only 2 1/2, you say. yes. but sometimes you can see their future flash in front of you. sometimes you just know they will do big big things. sometimes, they already have a personality so big that you know what's probably coming.
i'm pretty confident this kid will have big big big dreams when he's a bit older. he's a gem. he makes me want to be better. and even though he's been the easiest child to parent, sometimes, it is hard to parent because of the easy. sometimes we need serious but he only has giggles and bouncy energy to offer. sometimes we need quick, but he's too busy being silly to hurry.
almost everyday, i pray for him, i pray that he will never lose his joy, his happy. i pray he will always be this way, even after puberty. and as of right now, that is truly my biggest prayer for him.... to always have joy, to always spread it into the world, to always share it, and to let it come from Jesus when he's older.
he's a beautiful boy. a beautiful soul. a sweetheart. a hugger and kisser. a thumb sucker. a blankie toter. a prize in this world. a curly-haired blondie. a loud little two year old. often mistaken for a girl.
i love him bigger than big.
