Today, when I pulled into the driveway after running errands, I saw a man sitting on a small boulder near where I had parked. He was wearing a sweater and a hat and had a brownish-red beard with gray in it. My first thought was, "That looks like Scott."
I wanted to go over to him and tell him how interesting it was to me that he looked just like my step-father, but my hands were full and I wanted to get my things into the house. I had to come back out for the rest of it anyway, so I figured I would talk to him when I came back out.
I was inside my apartment for no more than thirty seconds. When I came back out, he was gone. I looked up and down the path, but he was gone. I almost started to cry.
I realize that's a strong emotion for not getting to speak to a perfect stranger, but I couldn't help myself. You see, my step-dad has been passed for almost eleven years, this is the first time I've ever come across "seeing him" since then, and my sisters and I still miss him so much.
So, I sit here typing this and crying and hoping my kids stay upstairs until I wipe the mascara off my cheeks, to make sure I never forget and to let my sisters know that I think he's still with us.
We love and miss you Scott!

My daughter "borrowed" my camera and took it outside with her. This is a snippet of what she shot. After watching it, I came to the conclusion that it sucks to live at butt level!

It was so late, but they were driving me crazy inside the house. So I let them out to blow off some energy before sending them to bed. If you listen closely, you can hear me telling them to be quiet for the neighbors. Yeah, right! ; )
