My Story, Day 1

Posted on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Would YOU like to read my story?

My guess was your answer might be “Maybe.  Yes.”

Yesterday, I began telling “my story.”  The “why” was told then. 

You can read it here.

I Love My Parents

I was born at a very young age.  That’s the joke I often tell.

I’ve seen the paperwork.  Here’s a photo of when I was really little, but I don’t remember anything about that time.  These two people do.

My mom, Karan, and my dad, Paul, welcomed little Scott into the world in the fall of 1962.

While the details may have faded a bit over the years my mom and dad treasured me.  I always knew that.  I usually believed that.

For that and a million other things I will always be indebted to them, and always be thankful for them.

I Love Gifts 

I know I would like to fully embrace “it’s better to give than to receive”, but if I’m honest I don’t.

I love to give gifts — money, time, talent, stuff — but I love when people do the same for me.  This photo of a completely unrestrained me shows the truth of that statement.

I LOVE to Laugh

I’m inserting this third photo for two reasons.

1.) When Amy saw it she laughed, and so will you. 

2.) My shoes are on the opposite feet, on purpose.

I was, as they say “pigeon-toed”. I walked with my feet turned in.  My parents seeking to correct that put my shoes on the opposite feet.  I have no idea where they got that idea, but it worked.

My parents are and were innovative problem solvers.  That’s undoubtedly where I get it too.

That’s all for now.  Parents, present and pigeon-toed, more tomorrow.

  1. I was born with one foot that turned in completely… My parents solved that with putting weights on my ankles… Parents always seem to know how to fix things… (Usually… LOL!)

  2. And Angie, you’ll undoubtedly be an equally creative mom too!

    You bless me!
