if i could choose someone to be my big brother,
it'd be jake.
not that he's perfect or anything.
he looses his patience as much as any of us.
but most of the time he is....
just such a great big brother.
he is so enthusiastically fun.
he's always ready to go along with jake's leadership.
he doen't need the credit.
he just wants to participate and have FUN!
i wish i could be more like him.
they are brothers.
it is so beautiful.
i'm sure there will be more to come.
and (as with most beauty) pain and disappointment too.
but right now, in this moment, their brotherhood is such a gift.
i am grateful.
i hope someday they will be able to see the gift and be truly grateful too.
