Today is my brother’s birthday and I am even more thankful for him than usual (if that is at all possible). My brother is the kindest, sweetest, gentlest, most warm-hearted person I know and love, and I am so grateful to live in a world where I can exist as he does.
I attribute much of my creativity to my brother. We spent so much of our childhood playing make believe and making up stories. We would spend hours pretending we were characters from movies or books, and we had so many adventures throughout the years. We still have adventures sometimes, and we love spending the simplest of time together whenever I come back to visit.
I know that someday soon I will be working a full-time job, and one day I will have a family of my own. But I know in my heart that I will always make an effort to have a loving relationship with my brother. And I know that he wants that with me, too.
Happy birthday to Shaun! 💙
