My Favorite Studio Picture
In this meditation I will share with you, how my first studio pictured came to be.
When I was around seven years of age, my grand parents Ellhannon and Phoebe Schell, gathered their family for a family portrait.
And for some reason, I got to go along with them to the Studio, in London Kentucky.
All went well at the session , and everyone was elated, except me, I was crying a little to myself on the way home, and grandpa asked why I was so sad.
After some coercing, I finally told him why I wasn't happy.
I explained to him, because I wasn't in the family portraits... that made grandpa sad also... He said I'm so sorry Coleman, it never dawned on me to include you in our pictures.
If you'll for-give me he replied, I will take you next week to get your very own studio picture made.
I quickly forgave him and excepted his offer, it wasn't like me to have hurt feelings toward grandpa.
The next week I dressed up in my best and grandpa and I went to town.
As I look back to that photo session, I'm reminded of what a special grandpa he was.
Some of our family members say grandpa picked out my name for me when I was born.
If he did; he picked a most unique name; I looked it up on the internet and found only 249 people in the U.S.A. have Coleman as a first name.
A unique name for a unique guy I guess aye...Just Kidding but it is a uncommon name, It seems I'm the only one who ever stands up when its called out.
I shall always treasure my name...my time spent with grandpa.... and this special picture.
Until Next Time, God Bless.
