I LOVE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
How can I even put into words what my brothers and sisters mean to me?
We all had the same childhood, we have seen each other in the worst of times and the best of times.
Oh the memories I have are priceless!
These memories are what I treasure and hope and pray that my boys will love each other as much as we love each other!
To commemorate this day, I would like to go around the circle to tell you how much you all mean to me!
Thank you Collette for being my confidante, my protector and therapist. How I love you Collette. Moving to El Paso was the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, because this was where I discovered that the best friends in life are your family! I still remember how scary it was to go to the new Franklin High School and did not know anyone, Except I had had you and that was all I ever needed! Thank you for letting tag along:) You still are such a big factor in my life, thank you for your example and always cheering for your Canadians:)
Nicole – Oh Nicole, thank you for always being the one who picks me up on the side of the road, for doing fun things, for being my best friend in Highschool when Collette had to leave for College. For being such a good mom and teaching me how to do it. For starting the Hoops by Hand business and letting me a part of it!
Thomas – to know you is to like you, you are always so full of joy. Thanks for your optimism, and marrying such a beautiful lady that we get to have for our sister in law! You an incredible person with such integrity and can do it attitude. You are such a blessing, and a fun dad indeed!
Daniel – aka Manny Head. Oh Dan where do I start? You are my soft spot, and so sweet and sensitive! I treasure the walks we would go on growing up. I love thinking back on the Shop memories and how you detested working with all of your heart. I love how precious you are and how you are a kid at heart. My boys love you and consider you a Pokemon Master. I am grateful that you married a beautiful princess that only adds to our family.
Lisa – Oh Ang, you little baben, hunnard. When you came to our family we rejoiced! I tell everyone you are the star of the family! You are wise beyond your years, so happy, know what you want out of life and so righteous. I will always treasure the time when you came to visit me when I was 36 weeks pregnant with Bennett and Timmy was gone. I didn’t know what to do, and then you came, and all was right with the world!
The best part of having siblings, is that you can keep them forever! It is fun to see my brothers and sisters get married, start families, and progress through life.
With all of you by my side the future only looks bright!
By the way, did I tell you guys that I love you?
