I seldom have the opportunity to celebrate my brother’s birthday with him. Today, November 25, is his birthday and I’ve been thinking of him a lot, as usual. I’m sorry that we live so far apart but it’s one of the facts of life. I’m thankful that we have telephone and e-mail communication and it’s easy to keep in touch in spite of the distance.
I’m proud of my brother. He is intelligent, handsome, strong and gentle, thoughtful, and kind. He has a great sense of humor, too. When we talk together, we have a lot of laughter. I like his upbeat attitude and his commitment to healthy living. I love his commitment to God and serving Him. I love his wife and his family.
I wish that today I could celebrate his birthday with him, and Fran. But I’m glad that he will be having a joyful celebration. It’s really nice that his birthday was so close to Thanksgiving, –but whatever day he was born on would be special to me. I love my brother!
