My next “I’m thankful for” is Brandon. He is my third oldest brother and 4 years older than me. I’m thankful for Brandon because of the spiritual insight he brings. I’m very proud of my brother for serving his mission in Brazil (came home in August). This isn’t to say that my other siblings aren’t spiritual or that I’m not proud of them but that it’s something that I’m thankful for in Brandon. Brandon is a pretty funny guy too, always trying to make people laugh. I love that he tries to make people laugh. We chat. We’re buds.
MATT! Matthew is my second oldest brother, 5 years older than me. I’m thankful for Matt because we’ve been through hard times together. We weren’t always close and our relationship was rocky for a while but now I couldn’t imagine what I’d do without him. We go to church together (when I’m home), go to events together, have some of the same friends (that we have dinner parties with), spend car rides together chatting about life, give each other advice, and are each other’s wingman/woman. All in all, much like best friends. And I’m glad for it.
My brothers and sister. I can’t decide if I want to do them all at once or in 5 separate posts (you read that right, I have 5 siblings). For now, I’ll just do one at a time. If I run out of days, I can smush them together. I’ll just do them in order of oldest to youngest (no need to play favorites here).
First up: Phillip
Phillip is 7 years older than me. I’m thankful for Phillip because he was always the comforting one. Compared to my other brothers he seemed more calm (probably because he was older) and more like the one that you would go to for a hug. He’s the brother that you just know he cares even if he doesn’t show it.
