Blog prompt: Today is National Sibling Day. If you have a sibling, describe your relationship. If you donâ??t, write about someone elseâ??s relationship with a sibling.
Yes, I have a little brother but by looking at him though, you would think he was my big brother. Our family is not small in frame at all and when you put my “little” brother next to me, he is a Mr. Atlas without working on it. Beautiful wavy hair, a great smile, always making me laugh and a great father and husband.
I have tons and tons of stories about my brother and how he use to annoy me to no end when I was younger. Come to think of it, he still does annoy me! But, my best stories of him are of recent.
He married for the 1st time at the age of 42 and became a father for the 1st time a couple years later to a wonderful son named Denver. My parents now have 2 grandchildren 25 years apart. I don’t get to see my brother much now since I live in Florida, but we still see each other at least once a year.
But the thing I will always be most proud of my brother for is that he has given many years of his life to our military. He recently spent a year in Iraq with his National Guard unit and missed the birth of his only child. Those were long days while he was gone, but he has made a commitment to his country and he will always stand by that.Â He will retire soon from the National Guard after 20 years and I know he will be glad to see that extra retirement money inÂ a few years.

Have a great weekend and call your sibling,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
