A Special Thanks to My Brother

I’m doing an impromptu dance in my living room as I’m reminded of how lucky I am and what amazing and special people I have in my life. The feelings of gratitude are so uplifting and good for the spirit and soul. You can’t possibly have a bad day when you are feeling grateful and blessed.

There are people who are only a phone call or email away when I get into trouble. I know that not everyone has a support network, family, or friends who rush to their aid.

I don’t only call when there is a problem; it’s that they are so busy they don’t have time for just talking or hanging out. They’re active people. I understand and respect that. Yet they’re there when I need them and they make time and I get squeezed into an open time slot. That’s very special and means a lot to me, I know they don’t have to do that.

Today my laptop crashed. It’s not that old, I’ve only had it a year or less. I don’t think it’s a virus, since my brother cleaned it for me a few weeks ago and reinstalled windows 7 and it works great. He used to charge me for stuff like this but he hasn’t the last few times and I’m appreciative that he’s so helpful.

The thing I want most is to see and spend more time with my brother, but I know he’s busy and he’s got a lot of stuff on his plate. I’m really proud of him and everything he’s accomplished.

Sometimes I ask myself, “Who knew that my little brother could grow up so fast?” Wasn’t it just yesterday that he stood before me a smartass kid who’s opinionated and loud, interested only in sports and playing and not his homework?

I still remember my brother as the little kid that wanted skittles, to be taken to the movies, ice cream, and wanted to tag along with me everywhere. Those are some of my fondest memories.

Thanks Jon for customizing my Kindle fire, fixing my laptop, and all the things you help me with. I owe you one; we’ll go on that trip once I get this project off the ground.
