My Little Brother

Thankful Thursday...and, yea, I am so excited today. A little background, first. I have one brother....its just me and him! (Ok..I do have two aunts and an uncle, with spouses, but.....) Both of our parents, as well as our grandparents, have gone on to Heaven - with my sweet Tyler. We are only 16 months apart and have always had a good relationship. I love this guy! As we get older, we have gotten even closer...and I love that, too. The only problem - he and his family move and travel and experience a lot of the world....lots of fun for them. Hard for me to see them very often.

My brother and his wife were married ten years ago in Moscow and since then have lived in Kazakstan, Amsterdam, Tampa (not too bad), Germany, Texas (where they are now).....but, now - and the reason I am so excited this thankful Thursday - they are moving to Virginia!! Not only the very same state where we were both born and raised...but the one I still live in!! YEA!! He will be living only about two hours from me.

That's two hours as in I can get up in the morning, drive out to visit for the weekend or even the day, and drive home kinda two hours!! I am so looking forward to spending time not only with my favorite brother (you've always been my favorite!) but also his wife and my two nephews! Yes, indeed, I am thankful this Thursday!

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.

  1. Thanks Sis! You're the best. We are so happy to be moving nearby. Seeing each other once a year (if that) just doesn't cut it. I'm so glad that Stephen and Eli will be near family once again and finally able to spend more time with their favorite aunt, uncle and cousins. We love you all!

  2. What wonderful news, Jennifer! I'm so happy for you! I have one brother (lost one to cancer in 2002). I haven't seen my brother in over 2 years because he lives in northwest Ark. and has a very busy life. We try to stay in touch through phone calls and e-mails, but it's still hard. I know you'll be so excited to have your brother closer to you!
