Dear I-gots

The lovely Katrina S. Forest of Book + Baby was kind enough to invite me to do a guest post on her blog, and I really like how it turned out. She suggested that I write a letter to one of my children, so that was what I did.

My letter to I-gots, my four-year-old son, is a tribute not only to him but to the overlapping threads that make up the tapestries of our lives. I can honestly say that if it hadn't been for I-gots, I probably wouldn't be a writer today--and I'm so glad I am.

I'll share this letter with him someday, when he's old enough to appreciate it, but for now, I'm sharing it with you. Hope you enjoy!

Inspiring and lovely! I just checked it out, and am thinking of writing a letter to my girl...

You should, Elizabeth! And if you do (and decide to post it on your blog), feel free to stop by again and share a link!

Thanks again for contributing! Your letter was wonderful to read, and makes me look forward to the upcoming years with my little TJ.

Eek, finger slipped. JT, not TJ. ^_^;; (I love the name I-gots, btw)

And thanks again for having me, Katrina. It was my pleasure.

That was lovely! Thank you for sharing that. I find our different writing journeys so fascinating, they each have their own unique twists and turns!
