Ode to Big Brothers

 Day 02 – A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

 My brother is like none other. Such a character, so "tell it like it is" to his sister, but so tender-hearted and genuinely kind. I have been tormented and doted on in the same afternoon. I have laughed till I thought my guts would fall out (in childhood and adulthood), fought the hardest (in childhood and adulthood, I hate to admit), with Sam. I look up to him with so much admiration and respect.

Sam was always the ringleader, whether directing the "lion tamer" game, "spaceships", playing pranks like putting a snake into my kiddie pool, or telling the funniest jokes. (Dare I talk about "The Burgler?"...ask him about it. ;) )

Already showing love, already making me laugh
Last summer, not much has changed :)

I am grateful to have Sam as the one who knows it all, sees it from the same perspective, and who I can call an amazing friend still. What a good man.
