On my sidebar I have a few links to blogs and websites I frequently visit – all representing people I admire in one way or another. Now granted, I started it off because I decided that’s what people who had blogs did – they had references to other sites to say “hey, see I know other people and lookeee here I even know how to type in different web addresses, too” but truly this small handful represents many of my favorites (that I’ve been given permission to link to).
I’m going to add one more: Scott’s
I mentioned Scott in a previous post thanking him. Scott’s blog or “live journal” began as a life story – like most blogs do – detailing thoughts and adventures – and now it’s become the story of a life ending – it’s at times raw as he talks about his frustrations, his pain, his bottomless love of his family, and still finding joy and strength in his final days. I’ve squandered his story as told through his site in that ridiculous hope that maybe if I held onto it tight enough the story wouldn’t be unfolding as it is. And as I read “My Baby Sparkles and Shines” – a story about the deep love he has for his wife, Gail – people I’ve known my entire life – I decided it was time to share while there was still time to share.
