It's hard to believe that one of my best guy friends is getting married this next weekend. It is kind of strange that he is getting married but I am also super excited and happy for him. This gentleman has blessed my life in more ways than I can imagine or even begin to count. He jokes about how I am the "older sister" he never wanted and I joke about how he is the "younger brother" I never wanted.
The truth is there have been times in my life when "younger brother" has really been there for me. I can think of one time in particular when my mom was sick and in the hospital. It happened my senior year of college. It was later in the evening like 9 pm or so when I got a call letting me know that my mom was in the ICU in said-town. Her lithium level had gotten too high which caused her kidneys to shut down. I quickly ran to the computer lab in my dorm and sent a quick prayer request email. I wasn't in my room more than five minutes when "younger brother" called. He tried to get my mind off of it by making me laugh. He even prayed for me and my mom and our family. "Younger brother" has always truly cared about me!
The woman he is marrying is one lucky lady! "Younger brother" truly cares for people and has a deep faith in God. I am blessed that he is in my life. I know this isn't goodbye but definetely feels a little bittersweet. Thank you for being such a good friend "younger brother!" God bless you and your bride as you begin your life together!
