"Your brother is always your first male friend."
I have 3 brothers. No sisters. When I was younger I used to always wish that God would send me a sister for girl talk, late night movies, silly times and all those bonding moments. I grew up with two of my brothers (the oldest and youngest).
Today is my youngest brother's birthday! He is 21!! It amazes me how it seems like not too long ago he was my annoying 2 year old brother. :) While growing up we did not always get along. He always tried to shove his way into my room when I had friends over, he always want to sit and watch a movie, go jump on the trampoline, ride bikes and more together. When I was a teenager I didn't want my younger brother in tow, I mean what girl does? :)
Today we are very close. I love sharing those moments on the phone where silence is comfortable. I love giggling and laughing till our sides ache. I love those moments in the car and you both suddenly say "I'm hungry, are you?". I love that our relationship has blossomed over the past few years.
He has a girlfriend now and I absolutely adore her. She is beautiful, funny and she gets him. I absolutely love that she came to visit us this summer without him.
I can't wait to see you this weekend little bro! You amaze me with the man you have become and your compassion for people around you, your encouragement, trust and so much more. I value our friendship and am so happy to have you as my brother.
