Yesterday was siblings day?! I wish I had known this, so I could have celebrated properly!
If I lived in the same town as my brother, I definitely would have taken him out for coffee...and perhaps cake:).
My brother is one of my favorite people on the planet. All of my favorite childhood memories include him. He's three years younger than me, and although we're pretty close in age, I don't remember much in the way of 'sibling rivalry'. For the most part, we got along really well. We still do!
That summer I read every Babysitters Club book, out there, in the tent.
We liked to play "spy", which would include hiding from various townspeople while writing "suspicious" observations in our notebook.
Later, we loved floating the river. He taught me how to snowboard. He's taught me so much more than that though, about life. How to relax a bit, and how to be optimistic. And he always always makes me laugh.
I don't know if I say this enough, or if he knows, but I'm so thankful for him. Every time I count my blessings, he is one of them. :)
