Many of you commented on how beautiful my button is! I love it, don’t you? My art student son made it for me…but there is a funny story.
It was rather late, and he had way too many things to do. To be honest with you, I probably had no business asking him to do it for me. But I did…and when I told him the name, he looked at me funny.
“Why are calling it that?” he said.
“Because the lady I’m doing it for is a painter, and it’s kind of a play on words,” I answered.
He shrugged. The next morning I had an e-mail from him. It had an attachment with a button much like this one, except that it said, “Painting Pros”. Suddenly, I understood the quizzical look on his face the previous day!
If this is your first time here, let me explain what we are all about. We are a community started by Emily Wierenga. Her meme was called Imperfect Prose. She is on a bit of a meme vacation as she has some extra responsibilities at the moment. If you have a piece of writing that you would like to share here, please link up with us, include the button with your blog post, and visit other community members in order to spread some love and encouragement.
If you are new, please check out Emily’s blog. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and you need to be acquainted with the woman who made all of this happen!

Funny story! Thanks for sharing it and for hosting our weekly opportunity to connect!

Beautiful Button – and I love what our children do with our conversations!
Even our adult children. Although, now that I think about it, I can totally see why he thought that!
It is lovely. He did a great job.
He did, didn’t he? (Smiles huge Mama pride smile)
Such a cute story! He did a great job and I’m so glad you are continuing this community.
It’s funny, because when he made that face and shrugged, I thought, “What’s the big deal?” I had no idea what he was thinking! Thanks for being a part of this community!

Dearest Em, I am thinking of you often and pray for you without ceasing!
Hi Kim! Sorry I’m a day late… I’m using a story excerpt that I posted last week, since I haven’t posted this Saturday’s sample yet. I’m not sure what kind of writing pieces everyone is posting, but I thought I’d link up the story excerpts I’m posting on the weekends. Thanks for inviting me, Kim!
That’s fine! I’m glad you’re here. It wouldn’t be the same without you!
Awesome job… it is beautiful. 😉
