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.
Thank you for the recommendation, Beth. You hold a very special place in my heart. I really appreciate the ways you have reached out to me during this time through your blog. Gail and I have had the most delightful visit with Charla these last several days. She has been a rock solid support for Gail and for me in our recent struggle and you are lucky to have such a consistant and powerful role model like her in your life. I know we are. >Scott
Yes, thank you for sharing … I don’t know Scott, but sort of feel like I do after spending some time on his blog.
Thank you, Beth…sharing his story does keep him alive and present…and later, it will be his legacy.
