Believing in Levi Nichols

We were driving back home today from the store. It was warm, quiet and both Ethan and Levi were quietly looking out the car window.

 Levi said," I like myself like dis."
Me " What do mean? "
Levi " I really do believe now dat I can talk to God."
Me." Huh."
Levi " I didn't believe it in Etiopia. I was like 4 or something. Now I believe it."
Me " What do you mean Levi? Tell me more."
Levi, " Every night I say prayer, quietly, in Tigrinya. I say for my sister to come to America. I pray like you say. "
" Now she come to America and I believe God hear me when I talk Tigrinya or English. ."
" My life is good now,..... I believe God hear me."....." I hear him too. "

Levi...." mom why you cry?"
Me " I am proud, happy."
Levi " I do not understand girls cry when day happy."
