My brother is one of my favorite people in this world. Really!! I'm not saying that just because he's my brother either! He's an awesome dude! My brother, Chris is funny, sensitive, a great listener, honest, and most of all an all around great person. I do miss him dearly. I miss him because seven years ago Bobby and I decided to move to the Sacramento area (100+ miles away from where we used to call home) and I rarely see him anymore. Our visits have to be planned out and don't happen nearly as much as I'd like. We like where we live but I do miss having our family close by. I miss hanging out with Chris every weekend and throwing together a BBQ at the last minute. I miss being able to call him and say, "hey...I'm on my way to your place" with no advance notice. And Chris, the cool guy that he is always replied, "see ya when you get here." I miss that!
So naturally when we do get together we make the best of it. Sometimes. Sometimes he'll even let me take silly pictures of him like this:
Pondering the worries of the world...
In the above picture I see how much the shape of our eyes are alike. Funny that it takes this silly picture to notice that!
Positive quote of the day:
"Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it."
