Erik Quinn: The Heart of a Family: A Glance Over My Shoulder

A Glance Over My Shoulder

Talking about the convention has been like attempting to create a beautiful mural on a cathedral ceiling with a miniature paintbrush. I find it impossible to describe everything to my satisfaction here, but I hope I was able to make those who were not sitting by my side feel like they were. It was an intense experience I do not regret and will remember my entire life.

To wrap things up, I'll share some photos. Enjoy.

I just read the post below (which made my cry), and this video on top of it.

Beautifully done.

{{hugs to you}}

I did fine until the music started playing and now I'm crying like a baby! Thank you for sharing your journey and I hope that you come to the next convention( psst...the rumor is it will be in KC or St. Louis, at least that is what the WSA is telling me as of today)

That was fun to watch!
Michaela was watching and said "Hey, that's me with that cutie Erik....we need to invite over to play"
So there you are....anytime, you all welcome to come over and play!

I just can't thank you enough for sharing all the you have about the convention. I can only hope that I someday am able to attend one. Wouldn't it be awesome if all of us here on the blog could attend the same one someday. It would be like meeting family members for the first time. You have given all of us the most wonderful present through your talent for writing.

Thanks so much. We'll revisit the week many times, and carry the whole experience in our hearts. And the photo at Joe's Crab Shack--all my children right there on the screen. A true mommy moment that can't be matched in any way in the whole universe! I want to shout to the world that I'm the luckiest lady in the world!

Love, Mom

Do they make waterproof keyboards?

Oh, Nancy, I just love you.

I wish I could find the words to express myself the way you do. You have a gift, girl.

By the way, your new pic is so good. You look happy and healthy.

Love, Kim
