Bloggers Rock~

Look what I received in the mail from my blogging friend Leslie. She painted this and did a post about it which you can see here: https://swo8.wordpress.com/2021/03/10/the-go-go-boys-by-l-martel/

Leslie, like so many of you bloggers, is multi-talented. She is a Canadian musician, artist, writer and so much more.

You may remember the photos of my twin grandsons that I posted awhile ago.

Leslie saw them and felt called to paint the twins because they reminded her of her sons at this stage, who were close in age and used to crawl into each others cribs. Here is a post about Leslie:

The reason I love blogging is very simple.

I love blogging because of my blogging friends.

I love being part of a community of talented, creative and genuinely kind people.

A creative community of all of you!

Thank you Leslie for your kindness. You have touched the heart of my entire family. Your portraits have pride of place on my wall, and will surely be passed down through the generations, like the precious heirlooms they are.

And thank you bloggers. You brighten my day, everyday.

Bloggers Rock!

Cheers to you from The Holler~

    Leslie is very talented. It’s a wonderful thing how she was moved by the pic of your twin grandsons.
    I’m going to visit her now! Cheers to the Holler, from Toronto, Canada! ❦❦❦

  2. Agree with every word! Your grandsons brighten every day they appear! And bloggers made the past year much more bearable! Today we enjoyed lunch with friends we have not seen in a whole year! What a treat!

    • We are part of an unexpectedly wonderful community my friend. Hooray for the lunch with friends! We escaped to the desert for the weekend, the first trip away in a year. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers Peter დ

    • Yes. It is the triple impact of these aspects of herself, that creates such an indelible impact on me, and thankfully, on you. I have the paintings matted and framed now. They are so special დ

  3. How wonderful. The boys are beautifully captured, what talent by Leslie. It is such an honour to receive something like that, yes you are right bloggers rock!

  4. How wonderful Cindy! Yes, bloggers rock, especially Leslie with her precious rock painting gifts. Your grandsons are adorable. I’m surprised you don’t fill up the blog with photos of them! 🙂

  5. The universe needs more Leslies – what wonderful paintings of your twins! Kindness begets kindness, Cindy. You constantly brighten our lives with your colorful photos and cheerful narratives. Thanks so much for sharing these – I know these little boys are a joy.

    • Danke Klaus. Ich bin so froh, dass du die Impfung bekommen hast! Ich habe es auch bekommen und es ist eine Erleichterung. Bleib sicher und gut, mein Freund დ

  6. I agree with you 100%. That’s why I keep my blog. I don’t write as much as before but I love stopping by for visits with all the wonderful people here. That was so sweet of your virtual friend to paint the boys for you. You are twice blessed in so many ways. Hugs.

  7. I just found a book about painting and decorating rocks at a Little Free Library.
    I’ve got some paints, though I’m not sure they are the correct ones.
    I’ve been lucky to find a few treasures. One was a kind of lop sided die!
    I’ve found some in different states that I visited too.
    I’ve made and left a few around that I decorated with just a marker… I’ll try and send you some 😀

  8. How lucky to have such twins! The last I remember you had a wedding…. 😉
    Time flies!! My one grand is in double digits already!
