For My Brother
Part of what I love about having two kids is watching them play together and remembering those fun times from my own childhood.
Now that my brother and I are (allegedly) grown-ups, we've found ourselves on very different paths. I did the more-or-less traditional college-job-grad school-marriage-job-babies route. My brother? Not so much.
Only four years apart in age, but light years apart in other ways -- and yet we're still those same two playmates at heart, still able to make each other laugh.
This week my younger (but now much taller) brother is starting out on a new path.
It's his story to tell, not mine -- so we'll leave it at that.
But I thought that with all the collective strength and positive energy (and prayers, if you say them) out there in the bloggy world, that maybe we could send him off with a powerful force of hope and light to guide his way.
He's picked a much harder path than I did. But I'm trusting that his road-less-traveled strategy will pay off in the long run.
