It Seems Like A Lifetime Ago…

January 16 is a special day for someone who is very special to me…

It seems like a lifetime ago, when you and I were young.  You were my big brother, and I looked up to you. Some things will never change…

me and my big brother

We’ve shared some hard times…and some great times. Thankfully, there have been more good times than bad!

It seems like a lifetime ago when you left home at the very young age of 17–and got married.

It seems like a lifetime ago when you took the photos at my wedding, nine years after your own.

It seems like a lifetime ago when we all took that trip to Walt Disney World together!

It seems like a lifetime ago when we were both blessed with baby girls, but in the blink of an eye they were both grown.

It seems like a lifetime ago when we were sitting at the hospital together, waiting as our daddy took his last breath.  Then six years later, we repeated the same scenario with our mama.

These days we are both enjoying retirement, and the fruits of growing older–our grandchildren!

Yes!  Growing older does have its rewards!

David, I wish you a very Happy Birthday today!

I also wish you many, many more happy, healthy,  birthdays in the future!

Ed and I really enjoyed our recent visit with you and Kay. I’m already looking forward to the next one!  Enjoy your special day!  

Love always,
