It is nearly unbelievable that twenty-one years ago my brother was born. How different everything seemed when I was ten. It is equally as unbelievable that that little baby now has a baby of his own. Blows my mind. In some ways, it makes him older than me. In some ways. I can’t help but wonder what the family life this new little one will grow up in. So different from what his daddy and I were brought up in. It’s overwhelming and powerful.
As I knew I would, I am struggling as the dinner and movie evening with Chad draws close tomorrow. Talk about life being different than you thought or hoped. Too many feelings, too much everything. Words don’t cut it.
