I do wonder who creates these days but I kind of like this one….
I have always enjoyed my siblings (well, most of the time), and thought we would all grow old together….
I often have tried to envision how we would connect when we are all retired and what our visits would be like…
As many of you know, my oldest brother died December 23, 2012. I came to realize that all I dreamed of would not unfold the way I hoped….
Life is different now and I am more aware of my love for Nick, Arlene, and Suzi in the here and now….
We have journeyed a difficult road together and I am thankful for each of them…
For the way we grew up together and the way we live as adults together….
For the ways we laugh and cry together, for what we share when we live honestly together and for the fun we share when we just enjoy a very funny moment together. I love how we write poems, tell jokes, play pool or enjoy a happy hour…
I want to encourage anyone reading this to take the time each day to be in relationship with those you love and hold dear to your heart. Don’t let technology replace the phone, don’t let busy lives keep you from visiting. We have learned that life can change very quickly and so love deeply today….
Thankful for Len, Nick, Arlene and Suzi….I am thankful God picked them to be my siblings!
