Mom, I have something to tell you...

This week, DA and I went to AZ to visit Jake. Arizona, or at least the parts I've seen so far, is covered in red rock and evergreen forests. While we were driving through a redrock canyon, DA piped up from the back seat. This was the conversation that we had:

DA: Mom, I have something to tell you.
Mom: What's that DA?
DA: This is beautiful.
Mom: What is DA?
DA: The world.
Mom: It is, isn't it? Heavenly Father must have loved us so much to give us such a beautiful world to live in.
DA: Yep! And Mom, Heavenly Father would be very sad if we broke it.
Mom: What do you mean?
DA: He would be very sad if we broke the world. Let's not break the world, okay Mom? Does that sound like a plan?
Mom: Sounds good DA.

He was so earnest while he was telling me that it made me laugh and smile with pride at the same time. It also made me want to rush out and champion recycling, go green, and cleaning up the beautiful world we live in. Thank goodness for children who remind us what living is all about.


  1. Awe. SO sweet!!! I love it:) Miss you guys:)

  2. It was great to see you and your cute little guy! Thanks for coming down!

  3. Good Job DA! For some reason this story had me totally tearing up (I told you I'm losing it...) and Rocco was like "Mommy what's wrong?" and I told him nothing was wrong, so of course he had to come over and investigate, and when he saw DA's pic he got all excited and said "Mommy that's my Fwend! Don't Cwy, he's so nice!"
    I suppose I'm tearing up BECAUSE he is so nice... miss you guys!

  4. why do you call link DA? cute story but i'm confused!

  5. Privacy is the number one reason I call him DA. My blog isn't private (yet) because I haven't wanted to go through the hassle of adding people who want to look at it. I really should just bite the bullet. At the same time DA is just a little guy and I don't want someone stalking him/finding him through me and my blogging. Anyway, it stands for Destroying Angel, which is what he is.
