I love my brother. There I said it. He is one of the funniest people I know. He came for a quick visit this past week and we had a blast. He and Adaela were quickly BFFs. She and Uncle Nolan played at kids gymnasium, splashed in the rain, and shared mac and cheese.
I feel so blessed to have a brother, someone who has been with me through the majority of my life ( I am three years older). Some how when he is around I feel better, it feels normal, even when I want to murder him. I really wish we lived closer. Maybe someday huh?
Thanks for the great visit Uncle Nony. I love you!

I have been thinking a lot of the power of a day. Earlier this week I had friend of friends welcoming their first born into the world. On this same day, a family I know through work was testing to see if their only child had cancer.
I was amazed that one day could hold so much. Our friends having their baby, feeling so much joy and hope, and our friends praying and worrying about their little son. How could all of this fit in one day?
I know that this is the reality of everyday, but, it has never quite touched me like this before.
Thankfully, the family discovered their son did not have cancer, a total blessing.
If you are reading this please know you are a blessing in my day and I am thankful that you are in my life this day.
