|Going, going, gone!!|
That is not to say that everything is coming up roses, (but the daffodils in my yard are trying to come up!!) because not everything is 12 shades of awesome. There are lots of things in my life that aren't perfect right now; things I wish I could change. But I choose to focus on the good. And today the good is really overwhelming the bad.
It's my big/little brother's birthday today. I call his that because he's younger than me, but taller. Most people are taller than me, so that's not all that unusual, but I can't honestly call him my little brother because he's bigger than I am.
We are 364 days apart. He was born the day before my first birthday, so we are twins today. He was the birthday present I couldn't return! We fought a lot when we were kids. We hung out with the same people and played with the same toys. But the good news is that we've gotten much closer as we've gotten older.
He's a great uncle to my kids. We named Benjamin after him. Actually, if you ask Benjamin he will tell you that his name is "Benjamin Uncle Alan Lieber." Alan made me the proud aunt to a clutch of chicks!
