A Quilt, a Painting, and a Connection

An early moon in January

Last week as part of Bloganuary’s writing topics, I posted “A Treasure That I Have Lost.” Sally, another blogger, read my post and liked it, especially the part about the quilt that my twelve-year-old son and I made for his grandpa. It reminded her of a similar story in her life when she and her twelve-year-old son painted a special picture for his grandfather.

Sally wrote a touching essay about the painting and how much her son’s grandfather treasured the painting. When I read Sally’s blog, I broke out in goosebumps, and I had to blink back tears. Both Sally’s father and my father have passed away.

To read her essay and see the whimsical painting she and her son created, click here: “Beep-Beep.”

One of the greatest joys of writing is when a reader connects with something you’ve written.

  1. Oh my gosh, Vickie. I’ve been mulling over doing a blog post on writing “connections,” too. You beat me to it! There’s nothing better than when someone connects to your writing. I’ll try and hold off on my post so it doesn’t look like I’m copying.

  2. Vicki, thank you for tying in our connecting through writing, how ideas can form into such ‘worth’ through words. Your sharing opens many ideas and doors to the writing world and thank you kindly for noting my blog and post. I look forward to more of your writing!
