Our Secret Language

Posted on

I will never know why or how this crazy idea came to me.

I had just started shooting video with my smartphone, and boom, here is the one-take result. No, I don’t know how to edit, but I do know how to hold a pretty steady camera and keep it rolling when all I wanted to do was laugh.

Grab a handful of popcorn and take a look. Don’t worry, you won’t need subtitles. Just go with flow and enjoy this shorter-than-short take on what is pure fun, and pure mom.

  3. Tom, I loved watching this! Jesus Loves Me is definitely her favorite song. ☺️ and she still knows French after all these years! Really made me smile. What a fun idea! And she loved it! My mother had that same kind of language. They could probably have had a great conversation! ☺️

    You’re definitely “that boy who loves me” as she said in a previous post. Her lovely personality always shines through. I enjoy these post so much. She has always had that Michaux family joy of life!

    If there is any possibility of my having a short visit with her, Tom, I would love it. If you can, ask her if she remembers Michaux Taylor, her cousin, (or Michaux Watkins Taylor). Maybe we can go from there.☺️

    Thank you for these posts, Liz (Taylor) Bagley
