Ok, it’s not really National Brother Day, but it is my younger brother’s birthday today!
I just wanted to take a moment to brag on how awesome he really is. He’s the kind of guy that would take the shirt off his back for a stranger. He’s served with the Army Reserves in Afghanistan. He’s worked as an EMT, and now, he’s in college studying medicine. He’s simply amazing.
He always has a way of bringing things back into perspective for me. We lived together for a couple years before I got married, and I miss our late night conversations about life. One of my favorite quotes from one of those conversations was (and I’m paraphrasing) – “Celebrities are just like us. They just happen to make a little more money. If I don’t really care about what my neighbor is wearing today, why in the world would I care what some girl or guy in California is wearing?”
Happy Birthday, Brother!
