My Brother

I am so blessed to have my brother. We are the best of friends--he is a great blessing in my life. It was just the two of us growing up (we are 2 years apart), so we are pretty close. We never really fussed like many siblings, and loved hanging out with each other (still do). The sibling relationship is so unique in that many times it spans a lifetime--sharing the "growing years" and on into adulthood.

He is a youth pastor, fantastic uncle, and one amazing Christian guy. Just another part of my life to be truly grateful for during this time of year.

Hi Kelly. Thanks for coming by my place and leaving a comment.

I never had a brother. There's nothing like having a sibling for your closest friend!

That sounds like my husband and his sister. They can laugh and talk about "nothing". It really is fun to watch!

It is truly a blessing when siblings are best friends. This is what we strive for with our children.

Hi Kelly. Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving a comment on my "Reading Lolita" review. I hope you will enjoy the book. Please come back and let me know what you thought of it. I always treasure others' opinions of things like that, whether they match mine exactly or not. :)
And it's so nice to hear of a brother and sister so close. That's really cool. I have no siblings. It was fine growing up, but I "miss" that as I get older.
Hope to "see" you again soon. :)

I never had a brother either. My sis and I always wanted one. However, we often said we were glad there was only two of us. She & I are very close. You're right, you can't beat a sibling for a best friend!

It is neat that you are so close to your brother - sounds like he is a great guy :)

My sister and I are only 2 years apart - and we are the best of friends still to this day :0)
