Today I am thankful for my brothers. I have 2 older brothers. I grew up with my brother Bill. He and I spent a lot of time together as children and much of that time we actually got along. We were there for each other during some rough times and I have many great memories of our childhood. I did not grow up with my brother Joe. Our father made sure Bill and I knew we had an older brother, but we did not see him while growing up due to circumstances beyond our control. I remember meeting Joe briefly as a child (he is almost 13 years my senior), but it wasn’t until five years ago that we connected and began a relationship. I cherish that relationship and am so glad to have Joe in my life. I do not talk to either of my brothers often, but when I do it is always like no time has passed. I am so thankful to have both of them in my life.
