One More Father's Day Wish

I have had a good time this week thinking about the different dads I know and love - and I hope all of them have a wonderful Father's Day this weekend! Just one more I want to mention....my brother!!

My brother is the good-looking one in our family. He is also, by far, the brilliant one in our family. Growing up, we both did well in school; however, I studied - and studied hard - for my grades while he glanced at his books and got the best of grades (and, no, I still haven't let go of that fact after all these years!) He has Mom's charismatic personality. He is easy to like and everyone likes him! He has Dad's strength of character.

Isn't it funny how family members each seem to fill certain roles in a family? I've always been intriqued by that. My brother has always been the peace-maker in our family...and wants everyone to be happy - often at the expense of his own desires. He is a great dad...very devoted to his two boys. I admire how involved and "hands-on" he is with my nephews.

Scott - I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day!! I love you, little brother!

    Thanks for splashin' around with me today. We have been on the mission field for 5 years now. Throughout Central America and time in Kenya and Thailand as well. As for the book "Forever Ruined for the Ordinary" one of my absolute favorites. I hope you get a chance to grab it.

    Hugs from this missionary mommy,
