25 years ago today

25 years ago I was told that I was going to be a Big Sister.  I was told this new title was an honor, and I wore my pride with a huge smile whenever I was asked about it.  I was told that my new brother or sister would love me and be my best friend. 

I remember the day that you were born.  I was only 3 1/2 years old but I knew you were coming and I was so excited to meet you.  When I went to the hospital, I got to sit on the bed next to Mom and hold you.  The smile on my face said it all. 
Do you know the picture I'm talking about...I'm holding you and Mom and Dad are around us?

You've grown into such an amazing man.  I look at you now and I still remember you as that baby, then as that little boy, then as that teenager.  That person that changed my life for the better 25 years ago today.

There is no one that can push my buttons quite like you can. 
We can still fight like we're children. 
There is no one who can love me quite like you can. 
We share our childhood.  Those memories are priceless. 

No matter where life leads us, I thank God everyday that you are my brother.

I love you, Casey.

Happy birthday!

I learned 25 years ago that I would be a big sis, too, for the second time, and that time it was to twin sisters!

;) have a happy weekend, Erin!

That is exactly how I feel about my brother but he is older. No boys were allowed to come near in high school, yet he acted like I was such a burden to have. Oh the love of a brother! Happy Birthday Casey!
