A Sidestep

I know I've been blogging a lot about my cruise, but I wanted to take sidestep for today. I just found a Tribute Post about my sister-in-law, Ruth, and brother, Scott. It's written by cjane, a blogger many of you have probably already read, and follow frequently... she is the sister of nienie... but deserves accolades in her own right. She is truly a great writer and I sometimes peruse her blog just to read her prose. I love the "voice" she writes from and the outlooks she has regarding the world around her. She is funny, witty, charming and sometimes a little combatant. I've read her two posts about my brother, Sammy's Diner in Provo, so it's now fun to see that she's written about another family member.

I was thrilled to see that she documented her visit with Ruth and Scott. All the words she chose were perfection when describing the two of them. I even got a little choked up reading her interpretation of Ruth, Scott, their personalities and how they've handled this trial they've been given. Ruth is everything she said, and so much more. And don't forget Scott. She sure didn't. He sometimes gets forgotten because he is so quiet and reserved, but once you get him talking, he is just as witty and funny as Ruth. I love them both and miss them all dearly. I've never even met Davy, but plan to hog her all to myself when I visit for Christmas.

Please do yourself a favor and read cjane's post about Ruth. And if you have the time to blog stalk, do go to Ruth's blog. It's a great, and inspiring read.

You know this about me (and it is really embarrassing and I know I am outing myself right now) but I already do blog stalk your family. You are such a great person I figured that you must have a great family and you really do. Now I feel like they are all my friends (even though they might now make their blogs private because of me). This post about Ruth is really sweet. Brenna loves looking at pictures of Davy. She knows her face and her name. I think Brenna has a secret desire to be friends with your family too!

I just spent a good part of my morning looking at these posts. How amazing! Really.
And man, I really feel like a loser... How did I not know about your Yo Gabba Gabba connection? Really--How did I NOT know this. Wow.
Anyway, I'm missing you and wishing your family the very best. (All of them.)

OH Christy Thank you. I think I got more choked up reading your post then Cjanes. I can't believe that you haven't meant Davy Yet, It seems like you have, you been such a great supporter thru emails that the though hadn't occured that you have been in germany. ANd I totally agree about Scott, If his loud mouth wife would shut up everyone would no that Scott is the funny one. Thanks again.
